Thanks everyone for the replies. This will help me a lot. As for looking on youtube, don't know why I never thought of that. Everything is on youtube!

Thanks again everyone!!!

I also give my black tank rinser a "little" shot of air from the connection point as well....., I can hear water moving out of the line when I do it.

Just the remote thought of having to winterize is depressing. Not the process, but the end result of no more camping til Spring. Usually late December for me..................

You got that right! Headed out for one more week on Oct 16th...cant wait! But the thought of winterizing after I get back depresses me...I am going to try to do at least a winter camp or two! I have the winterize down - so why not! $5 worth of anti-freeze is well worth a long weekend!

I wanted to do a Winter campout last year but never got the right combination of weather and clear schedule to do it. You are right, its not that big of a deal to dewinterize and rewinterize if you wish to. You can even camp in a winterized trailer, just no water of course. (Hey we camp in tents in Winter in the Scouts, no running water or toilets)

Ditto all the valves, Clutch. We've got the three at the wh, two more a foot away, two low point drains on the left side and two more on the right. I can't believe I didn't diagram them in their proper positions for use next spring. I monkeyed with the extra two under the sink and now don't know which way they belong. Also, one set of low point drains just travel in a circle, so I'll have to look for drips from them when we dewinterize. You'd think that Jayco could spend the nickle or dime it would cost to mark them with a simple "W" in the Winterize positions. I spent way more time positioning valves than actually winterizing @

I just don't understand why they need so many valves. Our old Prowler had the low point drains one for hot one for cold and one for the water tank. Just one valve took care of the hot water bypass. It is no wonder the new trailers cost so much with all the added valves.
