So are you saying that if you pump antifreeze through all supply lines without opening low point drains they will crack, even though the supply lines are protected??

Are they pipes that protrude down below the rest of the plumbing lines that wouldn't get the water out when the rest of the system is flushed with the pink stuff??

I will be pumping antifreeze in through the city water connection. My trailer does not have a fresh water tank. Can anyone enlighten me if I need to be worried about them if I don't see them obviously protruding down under the trailer?

Yes. The water that is trapped in your low point drains will remain static while you pump the pink stuff through the rest of the system and will not see the benefit of any of the pink stuff. They will certainly freeze, but you may get lucky and they might not split.

I'm pretty confident somebody here who owns the same unit as you will eventually chime in to help you out on their location.

Just went to your first post and answered my question. And yes, if there's water remaining in system, the pink stuff will just dead-end against it. Might call factory to speed up your search for the drains and to find out about fresh water drain.

It is a Wildwood DLX 39FDEN 2015 park model. I have to travel to it this weekend and am trying to be prepared because there is much to do. I have never winterized it before. I have to prep it for pick-up. Forest River is taking it back to the factory to repair a rainwater leak under warranty that has been a nightmare (a whole other story).

I just want to know if I have to worry about crawling under the camper looking for some low point drains that it may or may not have, or if I'm safe to winterize it as described if drains under the camper aren't visibly obvious.

Togger - I just purchased a Park Model and I don't have holding tanks or low point drains. I looked at quite a few of them when I was looking for the one I wanted and I don't recall seeing low point drains on any of them. I don't think there is any need for them without holding tanks. Bob is right though - better safe than sorry and just give them a call to make sure.
