New Member 2021 Voyage 2831RB Winterization?

Happy to be a part of the forum. I have a 2021, 2831RB and have a winterizing question. I found the pump but having trouble finding the anti-freeze siphon hose location on my pump. Appreciate any help.

Hi BPH920,
You might not have a siphon hose on your trailer, and the owner's manuals are not listed on-line. Perhaps you could use the blow-out method instead?
We had a similar request about winterizing from a year ago, but nobody ever answered it:

As Eagle said you may not have the siphon hook up on your pump. However with that said there are many kits that have what you need to add the siphon system to your rig. Camco makes a good product for what you want, I had to add one to a different rig a few years back. Its really an easy process and well worth it.

Thanks Eagle 5, thought it would be safer to get anti-freeze in the lines but I may end up using the blow-out method.
Safe Travels.

I used to blow out the lines and then fill them with antifreeze, but for the last several years I just blow it out and use the antifreeze for the holding tanks and p-traps only. Haven't had a problem, and we get well below 0ºF here.

(I'm sitting at a wooden table and yes, I'm knocking on it as I type this.)

Thanks for the info, that may be what I end up doing also. Have a great day.

Good info! We just bought a 22MY 2831 and haven't winterized yet. I was thinking that blowing out the lines and then using RV antifreeze would be sufficient. I will pull the access panel and poke around a bit around the water pump, though...

Hi Modman,
My neighbor uses the pink stuff throughout his system when he winterizes, and then in the spring he needs to flush out his system many many times to get the taste of the pink stuff out of the fresh water lines. As for me, I try to keep my water lines clean and blown-out for winter storage.

Thanks, Eagle5
