    read the ingredients to see what it is made of, theN compare to what the others are in the RV antifreeze,like the one you can get from Wal Mart or CW. The ingredients are ,,WATER, ETHYL ALCOHOL, GLYCERIN, PROPYLENE GLYCOL. I been buying this brand from Wal Mart for several years now, it called TRAVELLER RV& MULTI PURPOSE ANTIFREEZE

    I Just left WM and they have Peak RV/Marine antifreeze for sale. I will get 3 more gallons this Nov when I put it up for the winter. As of now we are still camping trying to go North for the leaves coloring.

    I think Super Tech is the best RV Antifreeze for protection. It’s a Safe, odorless & wonderful rust and metal shield for all metal pipes which are normally found in water supply systems. You can also take an advice from RV Traders about which is the suitable Antifreeze for your RV.

    This is a September post but are you talking about winterizing the water lines or for the engine, may be silly but you want the stuff that is safe, the pink stuff for the drinking water system. I'm new here and just read this so was wondering.

    The pink "stuff" we are talking about is antifreeze for the fresh water systems in rvs. The engines use regulat automotive antifreeze . NEVER use engine antfreeze for the fresh systen. It is posionus.
