How do you get the antifreeze out of the line?
When you De-winterize the fresh water system, suggest you do these things:
1. Water Heater startup. Before adding water to the main camper water system, you should do a separate flush of the water heater with a clean water through a spray nozzle/wand setup to rinse out left over dried up sediment in the bottom of the water heater.
Here is one type of flushing wand. https://www.amazon.com/Camco-Rinser-.../dp/B002XL2IBS
Flushing my heater
2. Sanitizing the fresh water system. This step both flushes and sanitizes the water system which should be done at the start of camping season or anytime starting to use the camper after very long (~ 3 months or more) of non use times.
To start the sanitize when the camper has been RV antifreeze winterized, I suggest you start with gravity draining all the antifreeze you can. This helps get as much of the antifreeze out before you start flushing.
Find the hot and cold low point drains in your fresh water system. They are normally inside a bottom cabinet or under the bed or sofa pending the floor plan. Open all low point drains. Open all faucets to break the vacuum in the water lines and allow air to get in to the antifreeze can drain out. Put a bucket under the low point drains to collect antifreeze if you have concerns of it going on the ground in that spot.
Check and make sure the water heater drain plug is out and open the drain on the fresh water tank.
When the draining stops, close all faucets and low point drains, fresh tank drain and install the water heater drain plug. Make sure the water heater bypass valve ('s) used in winterizing are in the normal operating position (not bypassed).
Proceed with sanitizing the system with a unscented chlorine bleach shock treatment mixed with fresh clean water. See PDF page 10, item 6 on how to sanitize the camper.
That link is from our FILES section and the Sunline owners manual that would work with your camper. Look here when logged in on how to get to the files section for lots of other good info. Look for the FILES, tab on the top of the forum. Click it.
Hope this helps
