How to winterize my 2016 3051s

Now I'm sure there is a thread that has a broad explanation of "How to winterize "A" RV" but I'm asking a particular question how do I winterize my 2016 Forester 3051s?

I'm not sure if there are little model specific issues to be aware of.

I'm new to this game.

Winterizing is basically the same for all makes/models. Pull the plugs on your low point drains open faucets to allow air in to the lines and drain water. Pull anode rod out of hot water heater. Close off the water heater by turning bypass valve(s) Option 1) cap drains and blow lines out with air compressor and be done (moderate winters).
Option 2) pumped anti freeze through lines by utilizing water pump and winterizing suction line.
Option 3) do both options listed above (extreme winters)
If you have washer/dryer or ice maker it's gets a little more involved, but not bad.

Also up within the forums go to Forest River Community Forums > FAQs > Winterizing for a good sticky thread (at the top) and quite a few others too.
