    Is there a general winterizing post/thread for a newbie? This will be my first winter and am looking for a list of steps to take. I've got a 94 Fleetwood Pioneer Avalon, no shower.
    Thanks!

    My first question is do you have a water heater
    Second do you have an electric water pump.

    It's a removable tank under the sink.

    Remove it and fill your trap with a little pink RV antifreeze. Then you're done. Those with onboard tanks. Water heaters etc. Have a few more steps.

    Pump some antifreeze thru the hand pump. Just put the hose from the tank into a jug of rv antifreeze and pump some thru the faucet
