Black tank and storage
« on: November 04, 2017, 06:06:37 AM »
Final tank dump before winterizing. Do I add a few gallons back in black tank for winter?

No water back in tanks if you're not going to be using them. A little antifreeze down the toilet and sink to keep the dump valves lubricated is often recommended. I probably do the wrong thing by dumping and then making sure my tanks are pretty clean, I just leave the valves open, and the cap off the hose connection. I haven't had a problem in 4 years doing it that way.

I wouldn't leave the valves open, critters will nest in there!!!

That's a possibility, but I haven't had that happen (yet)

If you cap off the sewer pipe, they couldn't get in there.
