Dewinterizing

I have a 2013 Flagstaff Classic425D. What do I need to do to dewinterize? In addition, what do I need to do to start up water heater and furnace? Thanks for the help!

Did you pump antifreeze through the lines when you winterized it?
Did you bypass the water heater when you winterized it?

There is sticky somewhere about dewintersizing but I can't find it. LOL
The short version is:
Put about 10 gallons of water in your fresh water tank. Put a cup of bleach int here then.
Turn your pump on and run all the water through all the outlets. shower, kitchen sink, toilet etc..
Once it is is empty, do it again, but without the bleach.
Then open the valves to fill your hot water tank. Fill it, then drain it, then fill it again and you should be good to go for the summer.

Thanks so much for your response. It is a fold down camper with furnace and water heater. Is there anything special I need to do to start both up? Do I just follow manufacturers operating instructions? Again, I appreciate the assistance.
