Winterizing laundry water lines

I have a Cedar Creek 36CKTS, soon I will be winterizing and wondering what I have to do with the laundry water lines?

Hi, either connect a laundry hose and use a bucket or use a small container right up to the faucets and draw the antifreeze thru just as you would for your sinks etc.

If you disconnect the lines to the Washer and open the valves, they will drain when you open the low point valve. You could pump pink stuff through the lines to address the water in the Washer pump as well.
OR
You can do what I did. Move to Flawda. LOL

When you run the pink stuff thru the lines, simply run your washer under a VERY SHORT cycle. If you have a Splendide combo unit, see here:

X2. That's what we did at the end of last season and it worked perfectly.

Did the same thing with a small container.

Since we don't plan on adding a washer/dryer I was considering removing the water lines or installing a cut off valve.

Has anyone done this?

I disconected the water lines to the washer, very easy to do.
