If you have pulled the battery, you can take jumper cables and your vehicle in lieu of lugging battery back. Just use extreme caution that the positive clamp does not contact frame. Clamp the battery terminal wire to the plastic battery box to prevent problems. 15 mins lost for a whole winter of restful sleep small price to pay.

I say your choice as to how you re-pressurize.
If your rig is stored somewhere inconvenient or you've possibly removed the battery, or the antifreeze connection is a PITA to get to... I wouldn't see any reason you couldn't hook a short piece of garden hose to the city water connection, fill the hose with antifreeze, open the outside shower valves and blow on the hose. That would be all it would take to push enough antifreeze through the outside shower to protect it.
I couldn't stand the idea of a possible busted line especially since we will be headed to Florida middle of January. so I re-pressured the system and put the rv antifreeze through the shower only - worked good, thanks for the encouragement to do it right..
