Easy Winterizing

Recommended Posts

I did a couple extra things for quick easy winterizing. Pictures attached. I added a 3/4 T to my hot water heater with a spigot for draining. I took the anode rod out and ran it straight through the T. Then I added to the low point drains with spigots so I wouldn't have to crawl underneath no more, or blow the lines out with compressor. I can now put antifreeze in drains, cut water off, open drains and leave. Even my Wife can do it now.

  Of course having RVed for 50 years I support safe effective additions or improvements that make things go faster or easier yayyyyyyyyyyy THANKS FOR THE POST. Hey whatever works for YOU is great... When I winterized I sometimes just removed the anode rod so I could inspect it and replace if necessary PLUS it seemed to allow for a better more rapid drain and discharge of any crud or accumulation VERSUS if only a trickle drain/discharge occurred and some sediment and particles got left behind WELL DRATS LOL 

  I AGREE WITH LAPPIR  Its my opinion if the anode was fairly new and still full sized the drain/discharge may be a bit slower, while if its worn way down which I have seen it would drain faster maybe bring more crud out with it ??? Darn if I know lol

Thanks for the tip, glad it works for you it looks so easy peasey GOOD INFO

The water drains pretty fast, I don't have to remove it, just open the spigot. It's on my general maintenance list to replace the anode rod May of each year so any remaining crude is flushed out.
