You do not say what kind of camper you have or it is a motor home?

This video may help ... or one in the right hand listing:

I have the XT-200. Very little accessible from the outside. I ordered that kit, bought the anti-freeze stuff from Walmart (only $2.58/gal, bought all 4 gallons they had), and have a space heater in the trailer to warm it up so I can work comfortably once the kit gets here. Water heater is already empty and the bypass valves closed since I just did the cleaning maintenance this past weekend.

If I remember I will take pics of the process.

There's a cold wave country wide it seems.
I'll probably set a small heater in our little dude this coming week. Our FunFinder's plugged in down by the garage so it'll be no big deal. The water lines and tank drains are full of antifreeze and the heater is drained. I just don't like it to get that cold so I'll set it to come on about 35F or 40F.
Burrrr.....

APD, it should not hurt your little guy if it gets cold, as long as you used antifreeze in the pumping. Most of us in the northern states tuck them in for the winter under shelter with no heat until April.

I know but i just don't like it to get that cold in there. I've had a small electric heater in the FF for the two weeks or so, set on about 40F, and the coldest it's gotten was 33F. (via my remote temp sensor)

On ours I disconnect the pump from the fresh water tank and drop the line into the antifreeze jug(s).
Bypass the heater and start the pump.
Open all the faucets and the WC til I get pink and the P-traps have antifreeze in them.
Then drain and flush the heater and FW tank. (We don't use the FW tank anyway.)
I make sure the grey and black tanks are empty first (of course) and drain just a little of the pink stuff thru the valves so they will have antifreeze on the slides.
