Just a question or ten because I do not know.

Are you putting several gallons of AF in the FW tank and then pumping it thru the units with the water pump?

Are the Berks not equipped with a winterizing system that would bypass the FW tank?

Does the air blow out the ice maker?

There is a winterizing system that bypasses the fw tank. There is a hose and valves in the compartment where the water pump is so that you can siphon the anti-freeze directly from that jug into the system. Also, if you leave the ice maker on while doing this, hopefully it will go through the fill cycle at least once allowing air to blow out the line to the ice maker. This is what I have done.

Move to Louisiana and there's no need to "winterize"
