Most campers have a dedicated antifreeze suction line at the water pump inlet. There is a 3 way valve that allows you suction the water directly out of the antifreeze bottle through the pump and into the lines. On the PDI, have the dealer show you where that is.

I had trouble with the dedicated suction hose on mine last year, so I removed the inlet hose at the pump, inserted a rubber hose, and drew the antifreeze directly from the bottle.

Just a note...I took delivery of an RV in late October once, and it had already been winterized. I don't know where you live, but you may want to check with the dealer to see if they have already done it.

The best thing I can tell you to do is go to RVbasics.Com RV Basics .com - RV Information for RVers about RVing and the site will tell you everything you would ever want to do to or with an RV. That's the advice I was given and it wwas well worth the trip to the site.
