    Default winterizing pumps

    I'm wondering what sort of things you do to ensure your boats pumps make it through the winter. I have a macerator for the head, 2 for fish lockers, a pump for the freshwater sink in the galley and 2 bilge pumps. I use antifreeze in the head and freshwater holding but in the past haven't done anything with the fish lockers or the bilge. My boat is not in heated storage and goes through cycles of freeze and thaw. I do cover the back deck so I don't accumulate snow, water or ice in the lockers or bilge. Do you run antifreeze through your fish locker macerator pumps or in the bilge?

    I run the rv antifreeze through everything and have no trouble with anything freezing up during the winter
