Hmmm. It should have run pink but if a faucet wasn't opened there could have been an air lock so to speak. Sounds ok as at least there's no pure water sitting in the low point. What do others think?

I would open a faucet (hot and cold) and see what comes out. The fact that mostly pink came out is a good sign.

Yep, went inside and opened faucets in kitchen and bath, still not much came out. Maybe a couple of dribbles............so other than that AF that is probably sitting in the fresh water tank which I'll drain and flush next spring......I think I'm OK. I took out the anode rod and plug on the water heater and just leave it out until next spring as well.

I didn't do anything with these last year (because I didn't know that they existed) and everything seemed to work out.
Here is a good product for cleaning the system next spring, however if you can get to the intake side of your water pump next year, you can winterize with only one gallon.

My neighbor helped me who used to own an RV park and used to winterize alot of rigs as one of the services that he offered. I was also told that the lines being plastic can/will expand to a point with out breaking, and that it is mainly the fixtures that you want to protect. But I will uncap those lines and see what I get. Thanks for all your help!
I suspect you pumped A/F into your water heater tank or the F/W tank if you used that much to get the job done.
