Jim, This is the most complete and thoughtful account I have read. I will be printing it and saving it-re-rereading it until I feel I truly have it down. Everyone has such useful information, but you included littler things like which way is open and closed on the valve ( BTW my 2014 piping is more higgly piggly than the straight lines you have). I love the pill jar as I just learned, the hard way about the fuses. Also I do not have all the valves you point out. I see only three the yellow on the blue line, a white valve on a red line and, a silver on the blue line. NuCamp identified these as—
The yellow topped valve is the Alde hot water tank drain valveThe valve on the red piping is the low point drain valve for the hot water plumbingThe valve on the blue piping is the low point drain valve for the cold water plumbingI had thought I would just blow out the lines, but got nervous with all the conflicting information and added antifreeze. I should also add that I didn’t open one line/valve at a time so I probably didn’t do a good job. Also I did not open the black and gray water tanks. Is there any problem with doing that on ones driveway?
My 2014 does NOT have a bypass valve so the antifreeze was a big mistake. Lesson learned!
So I guess my next steps are to wait for it to warm up and drain all the antifreeze. Can you do that on your driveway? Rinse until all AF is gone and sanitize the system and refill. Since I did not have an Alde bypass will i need to change out the glycol for the Alde? Or is that separate? I believe the clear line with greenish yellow fluid is the glycol. Please let me know if I am missing anything. Thanks again.
