The white hose in the bottom right valve that comes back across the pump should be the suction hose. Unless it's been modified before you got it.

That 3 way valve is the winterized valve, one to the pump ,the black one that crosses over and the white one to the right that goes into the floor that I can't seem to see where it goes if I can't figure it out soon I will have to get real aquatinted with the under belly cover.

This is getting frustrating the back of this thing looks like a freeway interchange in Tokyo. The white line going accross and south I'm guessing is feed line from the fresh tank?????

If I'm following the lines right, I think you put the city/gravity to city, and the winterizing to winterize and the suck up the antifreeze through the city water inlet. It looks like that crossover allows the city connection to go for the winterizing valve, which then allows it to go through the pump when the valve's on winterize.

If I'm right (I'm only guessing after all) then you can cut a hose, hook it up to the pump and stick the other in the bottle of antifreeze.

If I had to guess I would say the black cross over...... Reminds me of the old cliche "cut the red wire..... Not cut the blue wire...... But at this point I'M COLOR BLIND :

Oh, whoops, I didn't mean cut one of those hoses in the back. I meant cut up an old white drinking hose ( or an old garden hose like I did if you don't care about the bad for you chemicals leeching into your antifreeze.). This hose you hook up to your city inlet in place of the standard drinking hose. And then you stuff the cut end into the bottle of antifreeze.

Basically, your city inlet is your antifreeze inlet.

Sorry for the confusion.

Our old trailer (Fleetwood Wilderness) didn't have a pressure intake so it wasn't a problem. The new ones, including the one we just bought, all have a hose hookup (pressurized) to the tank and, IMO, it's a PITA.

Maybe you don't have a anti-freeze winterizer feed hose. My Wildcat didn't have the valve and hose to winterize it. I need to buy the valve/ hose connection and install it between the FW line and the pump.

Ok after a bottle of Tylenol and a few stiff drinks I got to go to bed last night..... Had an idea ...... What if I buy an extra in line filter and put it inline in a short hose,(stay with me now) then with no filter in it can I put the bleach in it and force it into my fresh tank? That's what I'm trying to accomplish not winterizing. As a full timer I don't see myself ever winterizing.

You can do that, one down side is there is a possibility of water leaks unless you are very careful.
