HG 356QBQ - Winterizing

Loved our first season in this rig (actually was our first season in any rig). Sad to be putting it away for the winter but it has to be done. Wondering if anyone has recommendations/tips on getting this beast winterized? How much antifreeze to use, blow out vs antifreeze only, etc.? It will be stored outdoors in Iowa. Thanks!

We're in Nebraska, so similar environment. I'll blow out lines, then fill em back up with the pink stuff. Make sure to do the outside shower and kitchen if applicable, washer dryer hookups, and ask points of water inside and our if your camper. I set a dri air(not sure actual name, but grab one or two at Walmart) cup on the counter. Check battery for water level and charge to full. I leave my camper plugged in and let the built in charger take care of the battery over the winter, but others don't trust the charger so bring inside or place a tender on it. All food and liquids removed and cupboards cleaned thoroughly to help prevent mice from wanting in. Turn off fridge(s) and prop open their doors.
