We got a new RV. A 2023 Wolf Pup Cherokee 22RR.
We will be using it next weekend.

One question - I was told ours has the connection for winterizing with plumbing antifreeze. Where would it be? I live where -40 is common so blowing it out is not recommended, unless you want to replace your water lines each season.

Its a 2023 ? purchased from a dealer ? did they do a PDI ? So they told you it had one, but you didn't ask where ?

These dealers are getting real shotty with their time after the sale.


They covered everything else. It may have just been a slip up.

Congrats on the new Toy Hauler! Probably near your water pump will be a hose, mine is clear with a cap that is designed to suck straight from the gallon of antifreeze. There is probably a valve near the hot water tank that you will flip so the antifreeze doesn't try to fill that tank, then you just drain the tank of water before you pump through the lines.


Found it.\

Thank you.

Congrats! We just picked up our new Wolf Pup 14CC last weekend, and we're taking on its maiden voyage tonight. Having explored mine already, I looked in the compartment where the water pump, water heater, and assorted plumbing connections are, and there was a length of hose with a valve hanging off the inlet side of the pump. I believe you flip the valve, remove the cap at the end of the hose, and put the hose in the antifreeze bottle to have the pump pull the pink stuff through.


Ah, found it.
Thank you.

swimmer,

Usually on the supply side of the water pump.

For winterizing in Saskatchewan:

1. drain all tanks including hot water and switch on the bypass

2. blow the lines with an air compressor (the toilet rinse too)

3. install pink antifreeze (safe to drink but tastes really bad)

4. blow the lines again and save the anti freeze

5. treat the drains with pink antifreeze.

If you are not sure--then get the local RV dealer to do it for you--money well spent!
