What Does the Permanent By-Pass Kit with 12″ Hose Do?

When you by-pass your water heater, it will drain and not refill. This keeps it from becoming damaged when the weather dips below freezing. The permanent by-pass kit makes this job a lot easier. Once it’s installed, you will be able to by-pass the water heater with the turn of a valve! When winter is over and the weather is favorable again, you can easily refill your water heater and not have to deal with uninstalling your by-pass kit

What Makes the Supreme Permanent By-Pass Kit Stand Out?

The Supreme Permanent By-Pass Kit from Travers St. Louis RV Service & Body is made from high-quality materials that are designed with longevity in mind. The valves are made from brass, allowing for non-restrictive water flow. The 12″ hose that comes with the kit is reinforced with nylon and designed to be resistant to crimping, allowing for smooth and durable performance.

How To Winterize Your RV near St. Louis, MO

By-passing your water heater is an important part of winterizing your RV, but it’s just one part. You will also have to clean the water heater, as well as draining and cleaning the freshwater tank, gray water tank, and black water tank. After you’ve done this, disconnected the water pump, and opened the faucets, you will need to add antifreeze.

Next, you’ll need to add a fuel stabilizer to your engine and generator tanks and run both long enough to distribute the stabilizer. This is because you should always store your RV with the tanks full, but tanks of gasoline that just sit around can become destabilized without additives. If you’re keeping your RV outside, you should also reseal or recaulk the top to keep the interior protected.

At Travers St. Louis RV Service & Body, we’re proud to provide the materials you’ll need to perform these services for yourself. If you’d prefer not to spend so much time on this service and would rather leave it to the pros, we will be glad to help, as well!
