Winterizing question

That time of year again to winterize. I air blow my lines first then I pump antifreeze through the lines. My question is do you leave the faucets opened or closed when you are done? Do you open the low point drains after you are done pumping antifreeze through the system?

Winterizing the residential refrigerator is a PITA. On my last fridge I was able to use a jumper wire to advance the ice maker to get all of the water out of the line. On this one there is a cold water tap along with the ice maker. The cold water uses a tank at the back of the fridge to store the water. I can't air blow this tank completely because of the design. I have to unbolt the tank to drain it. The outlet line has a quick disconnect, but the inlet does not. I know these refrigerators are meant for home use but it sure would be nice if the RV manufacturers would have a design for winterizing the ice maker/cold water taps.
PS: Yes I do drink the water from fresh water tank.

Leave the faucets and the low point drains both closed.
