Default Roof & General Winterizing questions

Ok so I am now getting ready to winterize my Fun Finder 2010 XT245. I was underneath & saw a Red & White line appears to maybe be Water lines but not sure. They have 2 lines pointing down with what appears to be a nut like item on it. Is this possibly the Street water lines that bypass the tanks when connected to city water?

I am thinking I need to cover my ait conditioner because I have pine trees which like to throw pine needles around in winter when its blowing. How can I got about covering the A/C & can anyone think of anything else to cover up while I am covering. I didnt htink an entier trailer cover is necessary from what I am reading out here on this forum just dont think pine needs into AC is good idea.

Can I walk on the roof is there a weight limit? I bought it used so I dont have any documents to assist me I think I am going to contact cruiser RV & see if they have anything available for me to get a hold of on it but not sure how long this will take if its even possible.

Default winterizing

Those lines with plugs should be for draining your water lines.
On the 2010 Fun Finder X-210 they are under cupboards inside and very stiff. I wish they were like you have.
I blow out my water system to avoid the lingering taste of RV antifreeze,
although one type is supposed to be taste free.
To blow out the system, I remove the H.W. tank anode and install a plug with a tire valve in it. Be careful to keep the pressure under 40 psi. I only use antifreeze in the p traps.
Ted.
p.s. Do not forget to drain your hot water tank. Every shop has an example of a frozen and split tank. pull the relief valve lever to speed draining.

Thanks for the info about winterizing. I will definately be draining HW tank & pull Anode rod. Some say out it back in after draining not sure what I'll do yet.

Tip... Always put it (anode) back after draining. Two reasons: keeps "critters" from making a home in your empty tank and will keep the threads from rusting making it more difficult to re-install it in the spring (increases the likelihood of cross threading it, ruining the threads on either the anode or much more expensively, the tank itself).
