Winterizing with a Flojet pump
« on: October 27, 2017, 04:06:44 PM »
I thought I finally had an easy project.  But NOOO!  I purchased this kit to winterize my '17 2520RL.  I like it because I can leave it connected and just flip a valve to go from winterize to normal use.  However, the Flojet pump has quick connect fittings, not the NPT threads.  Flojet makes an adapter with male NPT threads and a quick connect fitting so that will work for the pump side.  I still need to get from either a 1/2" ID hose to the NPT thread or from a quick connect to the NPT thread.  That should be readily available at ACE but I cannot get the existing fitting pulled out of the water line.  So, my question is, has anyone with a Flojet pump added a winterizing kit like this?

Just get a longer cheater bar for the wrench!  :o  ;)

You are right about fittings readily available, but as you said, they do no good until the fitting is out.  Is it possible to start with the QD and go QD/hose then hose/NPT?  My big concern is not all QD fittings from mixed manufacturers play well together.  That might get it winterized, but I would not want to leave it that way.

It's not a dumb question if you do not know the answer.

I think you may have the right idea.  Off to Lowes...

Why not just blow Gabriel Blow the lines out with compressed air. Save a few bucks on Pink Stuff, and come spring no need to
A: Contaminate the environment with chemicals.
B: flush it out of the lines.. Just sanatize as you normally would and good to tow.
(Do use pink in drains and toilets but .. Hey, no need to make a special effort to flush those out).

I blew out the lines last year.  My problem this year is that I don't have power where my TT is stored so I cannot run my compressor.

Can you use a generator to power the compressor?
