Winterizing your RV. Warning about poor RV antifreeze

I wish to warn users about this particular product, the label says minus 50, but it's minus 15 outside and the jug of antifreeze is frozen solid. I certainly hope I don't have issues in the spring with plumbing.

I don't know what brand you use, or where you live or what your low temperatures are. but what I said about that particular brand that it's rated for minus 50 and the temps have been nowhere near that cold and the stuff is frozen solid, the whole jug. I am only trying to warn people about that brand. Use it at your own risk.

I live in Alabama and weather is seldom in teens. I think it had gone down in single digets when the antifreez got slushey in the gallon container. I had left it out side exposed because I had heard it would do that

I don't know where most of you live or what temps you get, but -15 is a warm winter day here. -40 is not uncommon, so the comments by warm weather residents about slushy are kind of irrelevant, the stuff was not "slushy" It was frozen "SOLID" at -15.
