Valve to water tank

New 2015 Windjammer 3008w owner. Getting ready to winterize using the winterizing outlet. It says close the valve to the tank and open valve to inlet. Where are these located. Are there any pictures available to look at? Thanks Cyndi

In my TT they are located in the same compartment as the water pump.

If there's one installed it should be near the water pump. If you're not sure where that is turn it on and follow your ears, you'll likely need to lift a seat or remove a panel to access it. Once there you'll hopefully see a "T" junction on the water line near the pump with about a 3' piece of hose hanging off of it. Lots of good write-ups here about best practices for winterizing.

Also, make sure you've bypassed your water heater and possibly your water filter if you have one before attempting to fill the system with anti freeze. Otherwise you'll end up wasting more than you need to.

Does one valve close the tank and open the inlet or are there 2 separate valves?

It is usually a 3 way valve. When the lever is parallel to the fresh water tank line, then the water comes from the tank. When the lever is parallel to the siphon hose, then it will siphon from a RV antifreeze bottle.
