Valve settings for winterization

I have a 2016 Columbus 320R. I'm trying to winterize it myself and cannot figure out the valve configuration to have the antifreeze pulled up to all of the faucets. Can anyone help?

I attached a picture of our 2017 320RS for you. If it looks like this at all set the levers to the winterize setting. That WILL bypass the hot water heater. I know this because I left it that way when we went on our last trip and could not figure out why we couldn't get hot water. Took about 30 minutes to realize that.

Once you have them set hook up a hose to the water inlet. I cut an old one for this purpose. I put the end of that into the jug of pink stuff and turned on the pump. Took about 2 gallons for me to get everything running pink.

Thank you!

Looks exactly like mine. Any other things to do? Close fresh water drain, etc.?

Elkhounds, I have been wanting a good pic of a water plumbing station like you posted to use in a few tutorials. Would you mind if I used your excellent pic?

Not at all. If you need the larger file size of it let PM me your email and I'll get that sent out. Heading out to deer camp in a few minutes so it might not be until next Monday.

I added some pink stuff in the drains and toilet. I also opened the fresh water drain to empty that. Otherwise not much that I did.

Your pic is different than the Winterize setting as shown on the panel. Which is correct? Yours is actually set to the city water setting.

Took the picture this summer so it was set for use not winterizing.
