Re: Preapring your Amel for the Winter in freezing temperatures

We had sub-0 temps wintering over in Norfolk VA and Holland. Drinking water lines and tank can be emptied, sea water lines can be filled with anti-freeze. The watermaker needs food-grade propylene glycol. We bought it in 5 gal containers (wholesale food supply companies). I think we used 60% (verify that), changed all the filters.
We had an extra hose w valve in engine room to suck water from a 5g bucket rather than the seawater chest. That allows antifreeze to be pulled into toilets, engine, generator, and all 3 A/C units.
Don't forget P-traps in sinks and shower drains.
Hope you are enjoying your new Amel.
