All of us "up North" are wishing we were down there right now! It is helpful to include the model number/year of your unit in these posts to get a more precise answer. In my SunSeeker 2017 MBS 2400 W the lever under the shower is next to the access door to the water pump, and diverts the pump from pulling water from the FW tank to a hose that is inside that compartment. With the lever in the "winterize" position, put the hose into a bottle of anti-freeze to circulate it into your plumbing. Be sure you have by-passed the water heater and removed the water filter cartridge from its housing. Have your partner man the water pump switch as you go from outside shower to shower, sinks, and toilet/toilet sprayer. The pump makes quick work of a gallon of anti-freeze, and it is easy to waste. For my unit, about 2 gallons was enough. I guess FR thinks we are all geniuses, as my manual makes no mention of this hose. In our walk-through it was pointed out.
Enjoy your trip!
