New 24R owner needs help

Hi. My wife and I just bought a 2015 Solera 24R. We have never owned a motorhome or camper or trailer before. Now we are faced with "winterizing" it and are at a total loss. So here are some questions that we could use help with. First, there seems to be two hoses and valves just under and to the left of the step into the door. Are these the low point drain valves? Also, the red/hot one some times leaks and there is spray insulation over them. Is this normal? I've read about winterizing using the compressed air method and have decided to use this method. Does anyone have some "hints" as to the correct procedure to follow for the 24R? What I've read and seen seems to be a little too general. I'd
like some specifics to the Solera 24. Thanks! Ann and Thomas

My first suggestion would be to contact your salesman with your questions. Those that could answer your questions specifically would have to own that same make and model. Otherwise we're just shooting in the dark.
If you do use air pressure be careful of the pressure setting on the tank. Too high a pressure could blow your fittings or piping.

Thomas Johnson. We also purchased our first ever RV this year, so we are paying a local mom and pop rv place to winterize it for us. They said the cost would be $100 and we'll be able to watch them do it. Hence, next year, we'll know how to do it.

In another thread a couple of people said they were quoted $80-$85 for winterizing at the dealership.
