Re: Pretorien Winterization
I think he is calling the blue handled valve a 'faucet'.
If you are using an intake hose to suck anti-freeze from the cabin floor you may likely need to prime the intake hose with anti-freeze. Your cooling water pump 'expects' that sea water will be pushed to it as it is below the water line.
By 'priming the input line' I mean that it needs to be largely full of liquid with very few air bubbles before the water pump starts.
