Noted DW in ad, how about while charging piping with AF, run DW for brief fill, cut off then go to last pump out. That would pump AF through feed pipe and drain pipe.

You will have to pull fridge out from wall and remove Water Valve and take it home with you and re install in spring. Under no circumstances run RV Anti Freeze thru the system

Sure but.....
If ice cubers make ice, and, ice freezes and expands to a larger size at 32F. Then why do we winterize Ice cubers? Ice isn't any bigger or harder at -200 right? I just drain the tubing leading to it and leave it alone. More damage than good to open gear mech rotate shafts and and....

Sure you can drain lines but water valve located behind fridge is what freezes as you cannot empty ALL the water out of it. This water valve is mostly plastic.
