Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Water heater long term storage

I would empty the water tank and add camping anti freeze for the complete fresh water system.  Change the heater element too.

Hi we drain the tank if the boat is in an area subject freezing. 
Given the age of the water heater and that you got rust you might just want to change the electric heating element too.

HI all;

The last time we came back after about 6 months, the hot water had some rust colored water for a coupe of days. We had emptied out all water from the main water tank but must have had some water in the hot water tank. So I'm wondering what others have done and what is the proper wintering procedure for the water heater tank.

Thank you
