You should have the white flexible hose - look at the photo up a couple posts. That's the open end that goes in the antifreeze jug. I'm surprised your dealer didn't explain all that to you when you bought the rig. Mine made a big deal out of how it would draw up the antifreeze using the pump.

The anti freeze system normally is connected to the water pump with short white hose attached to it. There will be a switch / valve to connected to it to select the fresh water tank or the anti freeze pick up hose.

I've attached a picture of what my MH has to show the color code and what it looks like... The locations vary by model but the colors are fairly standard.
That looks almost identical to mine. One suggestion, take a look at the hinge on the black plastic door that closes off the plumbing. Mine fell off last winter while bouncing across I40 and other various bumpy places in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. Turns out FR only put the hinge on with body molding tape. Mine now has pop rivets holding it in place.
