Hi: 182king... Just finished cleaning the anode rod and flushing the water heater yesterday. The rod isn't far off 0% so I put some new teflon tape on it and will put it back in today. Thanks for the insight. I didn't think it was to bad!!! Alf

Does the hotwater heater come from the factory with a by-pass for winterizing? Or does this need to be an owner mod?

factory by pass is installed by Escape, but you may want to ask reace to install the E-Z winterizing valve that lets your pump suck in your antifreeze conveniently.

I bought a winterizing valve and found it wouldn't fit in the space I had -- it was intended to screw directly onto the pump, but the pump was situated with the input right close to the wheel well -- no space to insert the T fitting.

If you're adding the winterizing valve yourself, make sure you've got room for whatever you purchase.

Doug, you may have to move the pump anyway if it doesn't have flexible hoses which eliminate a lot of noise while in operation. Several member with 19's have already moved and installed the flexible hoses and some even went with the reserve mini tank accumulator that cuts on/off by almost 50%. I guess what I'm saying, once you get started there are a lot of options available.
Here is one thread Silencing the Escape 19 Water Pump
