Winterizing Still Confused

We have a 2015 Forester 2431S class C. Questions - Do the low water drains drain the FW tank? Does the low level drains have to be closed before blowing out the lines or putting in AF? And There is a -"NOTICE Remove the waterless trap before using mechanical drain-cleaning devices. Waterless-Trap can be damaged." What does this mean and does it have any thing with winterizing?

I don't much about your unit, but FW should have separate drain valve. Open low point drains while blowing out lines, but close them before adding AF. Never seen water less drains, if they are without water I can't see them freezing. You probably only have to heed warning if drains are clogged and are going to "snake" the drain.

Here is a waterless valve or trapless valve.

I'm trying to remodel my bathroom. For a little more headroom. That valve will help.
