Hi, Pod People:

Still a pretty new RPod owner.  I winterized the Pod but then took a trip recently.  On some trips, we really don't need the hot water heater.  Is there a cutoff valve?  When de-winterizing, the pump has to run FOREVER to fill that tank.  It would be nice to bypass it if possible.  Sorry for the silly question,

Thanks!

Okay, did a more thorough search and found some posts.  I think I can figure this out.  Too bad I've got to move so much to do it, but I think I got this.

Thanks!

What model do you have, and, when "de-winterizing".. just hook up to the city water connection. The pump will need 3 minutes to fill the WH tank, it's rated at 2 gallons a minute.

Thanks, Furpod.  I figured the city connection would fill the system pretty quickly.  Good to know about fill time for the pump.  I re-winterized a couple of days ago.  Good thing, too.  Getting down to 19--21 deg. F. for the next week here.  Brrrr....  Warms up pretty nice during the day, however.
