XLR 24 winterizing

Time for my monthly question for the experts. I am planning to winterize after I camp this weekend. I think I have a pretty good handle on it but one thing I am not sure about is whether I have a water filter in this unit that I would need to remove before pumping in antifreeze?

Let me know if these steps seem ok?

1. Drain water heater and turn bypass valves.
2. Drain gray and black tanks as well as any low point fresh water valves.
3. pump in antifreeze through city water until all faucets are running pink including the outdoor shower and toilet.
4. pump some antifreeze in the black tank flush.

Seem about right for this model? The water filter I just don't know if I have.

Thanks, as always.

Sounds about right, but don't forget to drain your fresh tank. If you have the winterization (spelling?) kit on your unit, just stick that hose in the antifreeze jug, open the valve, turn the pump on, and open the faucets until they run pink.

I don't think you have a filter, but I could be wrong. I have the 27HFS, and I don't seem to have one. At least if I do, it got filled with antifreeze last winter. But we survived when we pumped out the antifreeze in the spring!
