Great kit but ...

The kit is set up for fittings that come straight out of the water tank. If your tank has 45 or 90 degree elbows on it and semi-rigid water pipe you will probably need some extra parts from the hardware store. It pays to have a look at your tank first and save an extra trip. Overall, it is an excellent idea at a very reasonable price and well worth the time and trouble of the installation.

All worked ok but... Bypass valve ports are marked incorrectly and flow direction is not indicated as mentioned in the instructions - so be CAREFUL when installing until they fix documentation on package. Kit is missing one piece; a 1/2" IPT brass 90 degree elbow at the bottom inlet of the water tank. I "think" this would be needed on most rigs. BTW, the plastic tee included in kit seems fragile and is easily cross threaded; but it worked...

Great product, but not the easiest to install.... Lot's of arm-reaching behind cabinettes and wires to get to the hot water inlets. Maybe it's just my fifth wheel (Mallard) but this did take an hour or two. It took that long, partially, because I wanted to make double sure it didn't leak. Wouldn't that be a real....mess.... Love the quick winterize though. Took 2 bottles and 2 minutes. I opened the valve momentarily at the end of the winterize process just to slosh a little bit of A-freeze into the 'undrained' fluid at the bottom of the hw tank.
