Winterizing questions

I have a Forester 2401W.
Is there a hose to pump antifreeze into the water system and where is it located?
Is there a hot water drain Valve and where is it located? I did find the cold water drain in the back when I filled the tank on my first outing.
Thanks in advance for your help. It's not easy anymore for me to crawl under my new pride and joy but the nearest dealer is 3 hours away.

I can help you on the hot water tank. You need to unscrew the drain plug, visible while looking at the tank with the outside cover removed. If you need to purchase a larger socket in 1/2" drive, china freight is a source. Do not forget to set the valves to the bypass position after draining and flushing the tank. Apply a thin layer of teflon tape to the drain/anode plug, so it conducts properly with the tank, to allow the anode to function properly, and making easier to remove for future drain procedures.

Great topic and soon all of us going to winterize our rv. It will be my first time to do this chore. I have a print out and ready. I will go through the list like a pilot on pre-flight when time comes.
