2005 Dewinterizing Issues.

Yes I know...it's late to be dewinterizing. Been working too much I suppose. Anyway, I have a 2005 journey 39K that I started dewinterizing. I hooked up the city water and left the hot water tank in bypass mode. I then went from tap to tap getting the antifreeze out. Once it all ran clear, I turned the hot water tank to normal(so it isn't being bypassed). Then I filled the hot water tank and drained it a couple times to get most of the antifreeze out. Then I went back to opening up each tap. All the taps worked well EXCEPT the kitchen sink. It would either get no water out of it or it would just dribble out. Same result if I filled the fresh water tank and used the water pump(which wouldn't shut off).

Am I just dealing with a severe air lock or large amount of air in the lines? Am I doing something wrong? Or is it something else? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I thought about that. But the water came out perfectly fine prior to me taking the hot water tank off bypass.

Thankyou! I checked the screens and they were completely clogged. All is well now.

The next time you have an opportunity you should drain and rinse out your hot water heater.

Remove the plug and insert a small hose through the drain hole ... and flush the tank ... you will be amazed at the crud that comes from the inside of your tank ...

There is an APP just kidding, an appliance to help with getting the crud out of the Hot Water Heater. They sell them at you local RV supply shop, or just get a piece on hard plastic hose that is small enough to fit inside the drain plug hole and swish it around abit.

I took a pic of what the kitchen faucet screen looked like. I couldn't believe the crap in the screen!! Here it is:



Anybody know what that crap is??? It was hard and kind of crystally...so I'm guessing it's minerals from hard water maybe? Is this what the inside of my hot water tank or fresh water tank looks like??
