RV Winterization

Frequently Asked Questions

With all the fluids in your RV that make it run, lower temperatures threaten untreated RV’s components. These fluids can freeze in cold temperatures, causing them to expand and possibly crack or burst pipes. Damaged pipes or components would cause repairs that will cost you more. Don’t underestimate the power of anti-freeze chemicals as a simple precautionary measure! To apply anti-freeze, empty all water from your RV’s drains, pipes, tanks, and water heaters. (Not only can water in these areas freeze, but they can breed bacteria if left undried.) Unless you’ve used an air compressor to remove every last drop of water, the next step is to apply anti-freeze. Either way, an anti-freeze chemical is a great preventative measure, just in case. Glycol anti-freezes work by decreasing the freezing points of water-based liquids. As a result, RV parts and accessories will be less likely to freeze and become damaged.

Starbrite Anti-freeze is a safe, ethanol-free, odorless, non-flammable solution for your system’s fluids. It’s great for all water-cooled engines, bilge pumps, air conditioning systems, holding tanks, and more. Starbrite anti-freeze also contains corrosion inhibitors to protect metal component interiors, rubbers, seals, and hoses to keep them smooth. So, before the temperature plummets, add this preventative measure and protect your home on wheels.
