Gravity fill for water tanks

Good Morning
Enjoying our new Georgetown 310DS but notice that there is no Gravity Fill for the water tanks. When I am ready to Winterize, how or where to I get the antifreeze into the tank. With my old motorhome I would pour in the gravity fill and the pump through the system. In reading some of the posts it states there may be a suction hose on some units. I cannot locate it. Does a 310DS have such an animal.
Thanks for your help

I have a 2001 Mirada, so yours may be significantly different.

I have no gravity fill either, but I can set the water panel valves in a certain position, then use the water pump to suck water (or antifreeze) into the tank.

My unit came with a winterization setup did yours?

I hook this tube.

to the black capped inlet, switch the valves and use the water pump to winterize.

I do NOT put antifreeze in the water heater or fresh water tank.
