I'm not sure that is what did it, If I saw you wearing a lot of lipstick, I'd go the other way……..

Haven't seen it mentioned but for winter use/storage I've been draining everything of water, run a gallon of antifreeze thru the pump and lines, then blow out the lines from the city water connection at low (30-40 psi) pressure. The antifreeze ends up in the traps and grey/black tanks and gets clears all water out of the lines.
I've got clear lines in my Starcraft as opposed to the red and blue I seem to recall in pictures of Escapes builds. After the first 4 or 5 years of leaving the pink in the lines thru the winter I found the lines took on a pink color s I started doing the above. I just go dry come cold weather, using the CG's bathrooms and a 5 gallon jug for consumption.

WE use to put the pink stuff in our garage toilet. I don't know if that was the constant swimming or the pink stuff that got the two mice.

It may be worth noting that RV or "pink" antifreeze's active ingredient is propylene glycol-( link) not the more toxic ethylene glycol used in car antifreeze, which is responsible for many pet poisonings each year.( link)
