Question, newbie here. I winterize my R-POD using the hose under the sink and the water pump. I by passed the water heater too. After I was done, I forgot to ensure that my black and gray tank was completely empty. I empty both tanks after I winterize the camper. Now do I need re-winterize the POD after opening both tanks. I did add more pink stuff in the traps after I empty the tanks. TIA

Main thing is to empty the water lines & have a little pink stuff in the traps. Also the WH should be drained. All of the under-carriage tanks can just be drained; they don't need to be 100% empty.

Did you use compressed air or use the pigtail under the sink to suck up the antifreeze to send throughout both water lines?
