Where or where does my antifreeze go?

Ha ha, thought i'd catch a few of ya with that title! seriously, we just got this fr georgetown 375ts and have looked in vain for where the antifreeze siphon hose attaches for winterizing. on my old unit (1999 coachman class c), it was right by the manifold with easy access to the pump switch to facilitate winterizing...not this unit! nary a opening for a hose nor a switch near the plumbing connections for doing this necessary task...seriously, any help with this would be deeply appreciated!

Hopefully somebody more familiar with your unit will chime in, but I know on my coachman it was very easy to winterize. It was all labeled inside the rear compartment, turn a couple valves and that was it.

Not so much on my Sunseeker. I had to add a valve and a hose under the bed right by the pump.

Some units don't come with this feature, so that the dealer can charge you for the "option" or for installing an aftermarket kit.

These kits are EASILY installed, usually adjacent to the pump, with little challenge, and a few simple hand tools.... Screwdriver & crescent wrench.

And if the antifreeze pick-up tube was an option, then likely the water heater bypass is, as well. So you may need one of them, too. Just as easy to install, but often harder to get to, as it mounts on backside of water heater.
