Winterize a residential fridge

I used compressed air. You can purchase the adapter to screw onto the fresh water inlet at most RV parts stores. I set the air compressor regulator on 40 lbs and let the ice maker cycle 3 or 4 times. The water valve opens and it continues to make ice but the last time there was a light mist that barely blew out of the ice maker water inlet into the tray. It worked for me and no yucky pink antifreeze. Blow all lines and pour antifreeze down the traps.

I turn the rv pump on and let it pump the pink stuff to the refrigerator. The refrigerators ice maker is on and it will make ice until the refrigerator ice maker is pumping out pink ice and then I shut the valve off for the water line to the refrigerator. We use our camper all year, just not the ice maker

Do you manually cycle the ice maker, or let it do it on its own
