I have winterized RV's most of my adult life so I am quite familiar with the routine. Now that I have bought this 2015 3895 Voltage I have no idea what the BLUE valve lever does on my trailer. Could someone who is familiar with the outside control panel where all the valves and water inlets are let me kow what that does? I have winterized my trailer and I moved the valve to "Winterize" but I have no idea what it does. (or did) Any help?
Hello - I am new to this forum and somewhat new to the RV game. I bought a Voltage 3970 and have the same knobs etc as the person above in the picture. I live in TX so it doesn't get too cold, but does freeze some nights. If you have a minute can you walk me through what to do as if I was a rookie not knowing a thing with the same set up as the picture above? I am the type that when I do something one time I never forget, just bought it this summer so haven't had a chance to learn how to winterize. Thank you for anybody that can help. I will be sure to return the favor in the future.
I use a brass fitting that is male garden hose and schraeder valve.
I screw it into the city water connection, open all the faucets, and blow compressed air through the system. Don't forget the quick connect hose in the wet cabinet. When all the water has been blown out. Disconnect the compressed air, close all the faucets, then turne the compressed air on again and step on each toilet flush valve to get any water out of those lines.
Now I turn the blue water system valve to winterize and do the same routine again.
Now I open the hot water system relief valve and remove the drain plug.
Let the hot water tank and system drain.
Now move the red hot water winterize valve to "winterize" and blow any remaining water out of the system.
Open a few faucets and allow the water system pump to run until nothing comes out of faucets.
Open the fresh water tank drain valve and the hot and cold water low point drain valves and leave 'em open for a day.
Close all the valves, pour a cup of RV antifreeze into each sink drain and shower drain.
And that's where I call it DONE. Never had a problem...and yeah, here in the foothills of Southern Colorado...it does get cold!'
