2013 32qbbs docking station

Hi there,
I am trying to winterize this trailer and am having trouble understanding how to do this with the particular docking station. In the attached photo there is a winterizing inlet valve to the water tank which i closed, but I want to know what the rest of the procedure is. Is there a valve at the water pump. How do I access the water pump? The manual for this trailer is very generic and does not have proper info on the specific's of this trailer, which is quite frustrating. But any info from other users I would be grateful. Thanks

I have the same 32qbbs camper. I was confused the first time I winterize mine. I see that you have already removed the filter. I didn't the first time and ruined the filter. I see that you have already closed the valve to the water holding tank now you need to close the red valve to bypass. This red valves keeps you from filling your hot water heater with antifreezes. I drain the low points and then cap the lines back. The winterize hose located just to the right of the out door faucet. I have a connection with a hose that pumps the antifreezes directly out of the bottle. Once I have this connected I turn the pump on inside the trailer and let the lines pressure up with antifreezes. I takes about two and half bottles to completely run through all my faucets. I hope this helped.
Be sure to drain your hot water heater.

You do not need to access the water pump. Everything you need is right there or otherwise easily accessible. Low point drains and water heater drain plug etc. I pour a few gallons of antifreeze into a bucket and set it right there on the ledge in the docking station and drop the antifreeze inlet hose right in it. Then you don't have to run back and forth to change it out off a gallon jar and it avoids sucking air in there just before the pump shuts off as the gallon runs out. Mine takes quite alot of antifreeze. If you have black water tank flush connection there it won't hurt to blow them out with compressor. Heard a story where standing water froze in there and caused problems.
