Valve Walk-Through
Compact Water Trailer

Run 3-4 gallons of RV antifreeze in through entire system – all hoses, nozzles, and pumps. This will lubricate and prevent freezing and breakage. After circulating through pumps, open ratchet valve and once you see the pink spraying out the back, you will know that it has circulated and the entire system has been properly lubricated. Leave about 2 gallons of the RV Antifreeze in the tank to store for winter.


2 Gallons Bleach and 3 quarters full of tank full of water. Drive around and let it agitate around. Then let it soak for a few hours. Drive around again then drain and rinse.
