Winterized my RV with this product in Fall, 2012. In Feb 2013 with temperatures at -15 degrees, as a test, a spare bottle I had purchased froze in my driveway!!! Can't tell yet if RV is damaged, but I'm really concerned. Will be vacationing in FL soon and will Flush and pressurize system with water.....I'll be screaming mad if there's damage!!!!!! PRODUCT SAID SAFE TO -50!!!! This is the 2nd freeze up complaint noted on this product, and it was NOWHERE NEAR -50 DEGREES>!!!!!!! I'll be in touch if there's damage!!!!!! OR, I will let you know if system turns out to be OK. That would be only fair.
I recently purchaced this product to winterize my camper and by what the lable states your product will not completely freeze at -50f. The tempeture was recently -20f at my residents where my camper resides. I had previously and completely winterized my camper with your product and now my water lines are frozen and broken in multiple areas/places throughout my entire camper. I am wondering if there is any warranty or coverage for this product failing and in result of it failing my pipes broke. Which means now that I have to replace all of my water lines and should not have to because I took the propper precautions by buying and using your product to keep from having broken pipes....
I have used this for over ten years on boats and RV's. You MUST follow directions and drain the water completely from the engine block or tank and then fill with the pink stuff and run it through. I believe this to be the same material sold as CAMCO anti freeze by west marine and others for twice the price. I have seven boats and they all get this in the fall and they all are trouble free in the spring. It will freeze well above -50 but it will not expand enough to burst a copper pipe - THAT IS THE CRITERIA THEY USE. A PVC pipe will burst easier and at a higher temp so use the more concentrated version in colder climates. In Delaware we see about ten degrees as the coldest and it is fine for that. I also know that the marina where my boat is used to charge me $8 a gallon and they used the same thing to winterize.
we use this to winterize a home in the winter,. but it froze solid before we got to use it, it was 23 degrees out.. and we losts 4 gallons of this stuff.. do you think id buy it again? NOPE
I winterize about 70 boats from waverunners and jet boats to 90' yachts every winter for a local marina and have been doing so for over 8 years. I've never had a one break any engine blocks, water lines, hotwater heaters or marine air conditioners which circulate sea water through them. The product will jell and even get hard below zero but with no expansion which is what causes breaks. With last years bitter cold winter I did wonder if all would hold up. In the spring I did get several calls from boaters with freeze damage but absolutely NONE were ones winterized with this anti freeze. Most were boaters that trusted electric heaters. I know several other marine mechanics and marine dealerships that use it because it's cheaper than any where else and none have reported a problem. I do want to note that in my area we only have about 15 days a winter below 10 degrees and rarely do we see below 0.
Seems to be the same stuff the dealer uses and no we don't usually even have a negative degree windchill here.
I bought this as a gift for my hubby. It was on his Christmas list. He has use it before and says it does a great job over winter in the camper.
Not only is the product great, ordering on line and a store pick-up made the whole process painless!!!
I've been using this for 10 years. I do recommend it, but the reason for this review is just to save you some time. Recently a Walmart was built nearby, and I saw that I wouldn't have to drive 40 miles to the Camping World to get this inexpensive RV antifreeze. But Walmart's website was ambiguous about whether they had it in stock or would have to order it in. I called twice, waiting on hold about 10 minutes each for someone to tell me. Finally I just went in, and found enough on the shelf to winterize a fleet of RVs. Don't look with automotive antifreeze, it was one aisle over.
Walmarts price for this item can not be beat anywhere
Less expensive than using anti freeze and easy to use right out of the bottle.
Use every fall to winterize our NH house as we spend 6 mos in Fl. Good value.
winterized my inboard outboard boat motor with this last fall. this spring I had two blown out freeze plugs and cracked head due to freezing.i checked some that I had left in a jug by putting it in the freezer and it froze solid. never buy this brand again
