Antifreeze Inlet to Antifreeze

I have three inlets on my camper.
1. City Water
2. Blackwater flush
3.Antifreeze inlet to antifreeze
Can someone explain how the antifreeze inlet works?
I have looked all through the manual and tried finding out how it works on youtube but have founding nothing regarding this inlet. I would appreciate any help someone can send my way. Thanks, Keith

I'm guessing the valves it's talking about are the ones on the water heater.

You are correct. My question is how does the inlet work? I'm guessing you hook a hose to the inlet and the other end in a gallon of antifreeze. In order for this to work do you just turn the pump on? Have never seen this on a camper before and want to make sure I know how it works. I'm very paranoid. Seems every time I touch something on this POS I break what ever I'm trying to work on.

You are correct in your last posting. Turn valve and place hose in gallon bottle of drinking water antifreeze. The pump will pull from the bottle and discharge through the water lines. When done, place the valve in its original position and that returns the pump suction to the water tank.

You'll have two sets of valves to deal with. One set at the hot water tank to put it in bypass, the other set will be between the pump and the freshwater tank. Note: depending on unit, these valves might be accessible in the wet bay. If you don't have a Wet bay, they're probably right by the pump.

You bypass the hot water tank like you always would have. At the pump, you close the valve to the fresh water tank, and open the valve on the hose that runs to the inlet. Then, you stick a hose from the inlet into the anti-freeze and run the pump till you get pink in the lines.

Nope, it's the one that shunts the water pump's intake from the freshwater tank to the antifreeze inlet.
