2008 Georgetown 373 - WINTERIZE QUESTIONS

Where can I find the instruction for winterizing my Georgetown 373?
I had a Forest River Windsong before I bought the Georgetown but I will have to admit that I can't even find the water pump and water tank on this unit. How can I shut off the water tank and pump antifreese in the rest ofthe unit? Where are the drains? Whre isthe water heater by pass?
Shouldn't there be some instructions in the book that came withthe unit?

its easy, open all the drains under the water tank compartment, there is 2 caps remove them, there is a black panel the covers the water tank, remove the 2 white circles, behind tem is the water pump and it should be plumbed for the winterizing kit, go to the rear water heater panel , lay on the ground and look under the water heater there should be a black or white circle plu unscrew that, use a light and reach up and turn the water heater bypass , remove the anode rod, 1.1/16 socket i beleive, let it drain out, take the gallon jug and turn the pump on and suck it into all the lines,its easier with 2 people doing this, start with bathroom sink, shower, toilet, kitchen,out side shower ,ice maker , and if your s has the washer option make sure you get some to that, if you have a compresser blow out the lines before you install the antifreeze, should be able to do it with 2 gallons,

Don't forget your outside shower and remove the screen washer at the city water connection. Push the check valve in to allow the antifreeze to get all the way to the connection. Be sure there is antifreeze in all traps as well.

Also if you have an ice maker, you have to connect a 110v line to the relay silenoid that draws the water to the ice maker when you are pumping antifreeze in to the lines. it is located behind the ref and be accessed from the outside.
