I decided against the antifreeze since I was confident my lines were dry.

I also removed my water filter and made sure the housing was empty.

I used about 3 gallons of antifreeze to fill the drain traps and above the toilet valve and into the black and grey tanks.

Late model units may have this near the water pump.

Actually, I ran the pump till it lost suction also, but now you have me rethinking.... We had 24 degree night last week so what's done is done.

That's a water filter. You want to unscrew the clear plastic canister, throw out the filter (get a new one next year), drain any water in the clear plastic canister, paper towel dry the threads, and screw the clear plastic canister back on.

I think it would take A LOT of air to dry it all out.

Just got done winterizing my 3050S. I had to go out and buy a deep socket 1 1/16 to get the drain plug out of the hot water heater. The unit is only 6 months old and I had a devil of a time getting the plug out. The threads weren't coroded, but the manufacturer must have really tightend it. The anode rod didn't look too bad for 1 year.
