Remove the filter from the housing and put the housing back on. Then add your anti-freeze.. if the housing doesn't appear pink after running anti-freeze then remove the housing and empty. As others have stated make sure you put anti-freeze down all the drains

Thanks all. Have 2 more short trip out before the long Winter nap. I'll take the opportunity to unscrew the cabinet door under the bathroom sink and see what I am dealing with.

Well, I winterized yesterday as I won't be getting out again before the weather drops in the Catskills (NY). I had a TT about 10 years ago which I use to winterize myself with no problems. So here I go at it with my new fifth wheel which has the winterizing port on the outside, this isn't new but new to me. I bypass the hot water tank (easy) bypass the pump(easier) connect hose to 5er' and put end into the bottle of pink. Little lady is inside and I yell "hit the pump". The pump runs then shuts off after a minute and no pink gets sucked up then pump shuts off. After scratching my head for about 30 minutes thinking I ran the pump dry or something she says, "open a faucet up". So of course I take a deep breath to amuse her thinking to myself she doesn't know how this stuff (I'm keeping it clean, I didn't think the word "stuff")works. I hit the pump switch, open the kitchen faucet and bam, the pump turns on and pink comes out of the kitchen faucet. Yeahhhh, I forgot that part🤔, big "duhhhhh" moment. I understand how the pump works but talk about having a brain fart! Anyway, all lines inside and out, traps and showers winterized as well as holding tanks cleaned out, the best I can get them cleaned. Went through 3 gallons of pink. Thanks for everyone's input in previous post. To all still camping/traveling enjoy and safe travels. Oh, and in case anyone is thinking, yes, I gave all credit to the little lady, thanks again sweetheart!!
