Here's the de-winterizing checklist I put together for my Rockwood 2306 (same as the Flagstaff 23LB).

o Ensure water pump is connected to fresh water tank and not antifreeze inlet – reconfigure valves if necessary
o Drain holding tanks (fresh water and sewage)
o Attach garden hose to fresh water fill and fill fresh water tank.
o Turn on pump switch and open cold water side of all faucet and shower fixtures
o Leave open until water runs clear, no pink
o Repeat for hot water side
o CHECK FOR LEAKS IN WATER PUMP AREA AND UNDER SINKS
o Flush toilet until clear water runs into bowl.
o Connect hose to city water connection and run all faucets, toilet, and showers.
o Dump tanks again.
o Turn hot water heater by-pass valve to open position to allow water to enter and fill the hot water heater tank
o Install new water filter.
o Check tire pressure – 50 PSI
o Check lug nut torque – 100 ft-lbs
o Inspect all vents for signs of bug nests
o Lube black and gray tank valve handles with Liquid Wrench silicone spray

Drain holding tanks? I planned on dewinterizing at home, is that something that needs to be done at campsite?

you only need to drain tanks the last time you camp other than that your fine .
you can leave the antifreeze in them over winter

the amount of water in your tanks from de winterizing isn't enough to worry about till your first camping trip of the year .
