8329SS 2015 plumbing question

Just sold a 2014 Jayco and the plumbing was very straight foward, however under the bathroom sing in a mess of plumbing. Can't determine why there is a small shut off valve on one of the water lines. Can't figure out why there is a small tube leading from another line to the outside connections. cant figure out what values to use for winterization. HELP cuz the manual does explain or help.

That valve is a 3-way valve on the suction of your water pump (blue line). The valve can chose to take a suction on either of the other two lines. One of these two lines should go to the bottom of your fresh water tank. The other one PROBABLY goes to an outside connection. If so, that's the connection you use for anti-freeze.

See the plumbing pic I've attached. Most RV's look something like it.

Many thanks I think I under stand. This valve is turned to fill the lines with anti freeze and not the the fresh water tank their is also a valve to switch to a bucket of anti freeze. A total of 5 valves to turn when winterizeing 3 for bypassing the water heater one to add suction to antifreeze, any this valve to bypass the water tank and pump antifreeze thru all lines.

I' m not aware of a separate valve for the antifreeze. Just the valve in your pic. And the 3 valves at your water heater.
