Winterizing 2019 3010ds

Hello
I just purchased a 2019 forest river sunseeker 3010ds. We are winterizing the unit and i was wondering if there was a low point drain and a water heater bypass for the unit? And if so where would they be located?
Thanks
Michael

Low point hot and cold behind passager side dullys . Water heater bypass valves under kitchen sink cabinet , front panel with 4 screws on cabinets fronts will get you to them .

The one low point drain has a cap (whatever you do, don't lose the special washer), the other has a valve, in by the water pump, filter area.

Yes that is normal. You unscrew the cap to drain the hot. For the cold you open the compartment where your water filter is you will see a vale. That one is for your cold water.

....... and blow out the ice maker line if you have one by cycling the ice maker with air connected. This keeps the valve in the outside fridge panel from freezing. Most people try not to pump pink into the ice maker. Push pull cutoff is under the fridge, access by removing 4 screws and removing the rectangle wooden panel. Close it after you blow it out and before pumping pink. Instructions for manually cycling I've maker is on a sheet under the snap-on end cap of the I've maker housing. 110v will have to be on. Cycle it until just air comes out, then close the shut-off. There is also a way to connect 110v directly to the valve outside to cycle it if you prefer.

Additional thoughts, after you have finished, unscrew the water filter housing and leave it off. Any amount of moisture in the threads can freeze and crack the housing.
Unscrew the lines from the water pump and drain them as well and the small filter. Before the pump. On the small filter, unscrew the plastic cap and clean it out.
