Hand pumping through city water connection is pretty simple.
My question is the fresh water tank, pump and accompanying lines. I don't use the tank but I know it was used to demonstrate during the PDI. I've since emptied the tank but nothing else.
Should I just put antifreeze in the fresh tank and flip the pump on? Not sure how output of pump ties into city water lines...

I'm certainly no expert... But I don't think you need to mess with your fresh water tank at all. I drained it last year and left it alone.
The pump is under the dinette bench next to the fridge.
Using this winterization kit ( https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0006JJ588..._luffwbE9TRY6E
) you can attach one end of this tube to your pumps inlet and the other end into a gallon of anti-freeze. From there you can just turn on your pump and winterize all the lines. This kit worked perfectly for me. It takes about 2-3 gallons of anti-freeze to do all the lines.
I would think you'd need quite a bit of anti-freeze in your fresh tank for the pump to draw it.
Edit: Here's a YouTube video that shows almost exactly how the above method goes. The only difference for me is that because I blow my lines with air first, I don't need to put anti-freeze in the city water inlet. http://youtu.be/Q5Hvn9NpJa8
