To winterize, I simply drain my h20 heater and turn the 3 valves to bypass it and then pump anti freeze into the rest of the water lines.
To dewinterize, I flush out all the antifreeze from the lines, then open the valves to the h20 heater and let if fill keeping one of the hot water faucets open to let air out. When the tank gets full, water will start flowing through the faucet.
I have a 2011 S and my lowest point drains are underneath the body just behind the entry steps. Easy access thru the def door.
Hope this helps

IT may have been winterized when they got it .
Or the dealer may have done it for them.
just sayin

Totally new at this

Thanks for the help. It was winterized when we brought it home. We are getting ready to take it on a trip. Well take your suggestions.

I think it is interesting in my new 5er the bypass is done with only one valve. And he only other thing ou o is shut off another valve to close the fresh water tank and pull from an antifreeze container. Pretty slick.
