Couple questions about winterizing

Hi all. I bought a 2010 Wolf Pup 16P earlier this year and had it out many times and had tons of fun. But now it's time for winterizing but I have a couple questions.

First off, does anyone know if my system has the spare hose at the water pump to run the rv antifreeze through? Where I store my trailer is about a half hour drive so I'd like to know before I go out there if I need to buy one or not.

And second, should I close my roof vents? I was thinking of leaving one open a bit to allow the trailer to breathe. The vent I would keep open is in the bathroom and does have one of those big covers over it to keep the rain from coming in.

And also, do I need to put a cover over the ac unit on the roof?

Thanks for your help.

Keep the vents closed, your unit likely have enough holes in it as it is.

As for the A/F tube you might look at the pump and see if there is a tube not connected to anything.

Thanks I will make sure to close my vents. And I'm thinking I will just buy the antifreeze hose kit to take out there just in case it doesn't have one. I know what to look for I was just hoping someone had one of these trailers and could tell me if they come from factory with one.

FYI, I just did mine for the first time ever and installed the camco bypass valve thing. I'm happy to walk you through it, it was a pair cuz I'm 6'4 230 working in a space where the pump is that's the size of a shoebox but other than that, seemed to all workout great.

I actually did mine a couple weeks ago. I bought the camco kit as well but the hose on my pump does not screw on so I need to modify the tee with a couple 1/2" hose barbs and splice it into the hose before the pump. I will install that next year. I did manage to unscrew the feed hose from the bottom of the fresh water tank and hook up the tee there to suck up the antifreeze. It worked great.
