With antifreeze in the system and pressurized pull out the screen on the city water inlet and there is a checkvalve to keep pump pressure from pushing out water. Press in hard in the little nipple, and stand out of the way. This will push the antifreeze out of the city water connection.

I could finally make out what the antifreeze sticker says about the valves for winterizing. Just need to find those valves. Both of the ports in question have instructions for what to do. Just follow them.

....if so how?...hand pump?...I have one for my pop up
No. All you have to do is flush the toilet to get a little AF into the tank (after you've flushed and drained it as much as you can).

Yes you do pump antifreeze in the black water flush. A lot of water I'd left in that line depending on how the back flow preventer is installed. Or you could blow air in it also.
