    I blow my waterlines out so they don't freeze, but always pour some RV antifreeze into the sink and shower traps so they don't bust.

    I was at Lowes today (Sanford), and found they have RV antifreeze on clearance, for a buck a gallon. Marked 4.98. They had a couple of pallets with maybe a few hundred jugs.

    Not a bad deal at $1 if you need some.

    Buy a pallet and I’ll buy 10 gallons off ya for $15.00. I blow all my lines out every winter also and use a gallon in all the drains.

    So what exactly makes rv antifreeze so special? Is it non toxic unlike ethylene glycol?

    Non toxic. Goes in waterlines.

    A lot of folks use compressed air and blow lines out instead. Still need this in traps.

    I buy several gallons every year *AFTER* it goes on "Spring" clearance...
    I went the compressed air routes for a couple years, but our ancient/permanently affixed TT now just gets the low-point drains opened along with all faucets and a few pints of RV AF dumped in the P-traps
