I never have. I DO always make sure I drain the tanks to make sure there's no residual water in there BEFORE I winterize. But no, I do not pull the valves once I run the RV antifreeze through. That's just me and have done it that way for 6 yrs. Personally, I dont think it would matter either way.

If this is a really dumb question please forgive us. I think all the other steps were clear and I liked the tip in putting your finger over the faucet!

Thanks once agin for all the great people helping each other in this forum!

I do. One of the issues with the design of Scamps grey water (as well as a number of other brands of trailers) is there is a lip on the discharge side of the grey tank that prevents the tank from completely emptying unless you have the trailer sitting tilted over to the discharge side. If not although you have put anti freeze down into the tank it is very diluted due to the water that is still trapped into the tank.
