adam424 take out the washer/screen and flip it around and put it back in the hole. When you install your hose to suck up the antifreeze the hose pushes on the washer /screen to keep the check valve open. Works perfect. Had the same problem last year doing my winterizing the first time on my 3791rd camper. Service guy gave me that tip,he said he,s figured out the valves are stronger then the pump to overcome the spring to suck it open. Also when done winterizing,flip back the washer/screen so it stays closed for next year camping.

Thanks for your help, I just don't want to do something wrong. So i take the screen out of the lower inlet and flip it and use it in the top one? Sorry for being a Noob.

adam424,on my camper i had those cone screen in all 3 of the inlets. But yes turn it around so it pushes the valve open and attach hose for antifreeze operation.When done remove it or flip around so valve will close. Also don't forget to either blow out the fresh water tank fill line by switching it to fill for a minute to blow that line out then flip it back to normal operation.

I havin't turned my ice maker on since it was new. I'm at a seasonal site this year for the first time and i don't drink the water from campground, since i have been camping over 20 years. Mine water is turned off for the ice maker under the kitchen sink. I'm sure someone will reply to you how to do ice maker.

Ours came from factory in Feb. 2018 with antifreeze in ice maker and supply line to it.

I was told to do it the same way the factory did, so the 28th of this month I will put a jug of antifreeze in my convienence center and hook it up to water pump and turn it on for a day or 2. When it starts putting pink slushy cubes in ice tray, it will be done.

adam424,glad it worked out for you,i was pretty sure it would. I had the same issue last year doing my camper for my first time with this one. The service guy who talked me through it knew his stuff,works for the biggest RV dealer in MD. Ill be doing mine again in a couple more weeks.
