Winterizing question(s)

I am going to be winterizing my new to us 2016 Wildcat 31SAX... I've winterized my last travel trailers for 15 years, but this on is new to me and i have a couple questions...

1. Black tank flush.... I've never had this option before.. do I just blow them out? I have 2... one front and one rear.

2. Washer hookups. Do I need to get a hose hooked up to these water connections as well and get pink through them? I don't think they've ever been hooked up or used...

I'm assuming the rest is the same as my older units.... pull low point drains, open faucets, bypass and empty water heater, pull pink through out..

Thanks!! I'm confident in my abilities, but am getting a little nervous with all this new fangled stuff and just want a little expert advice from those that have done it!!! Also... about how many gallons will it take?

Congratulations on your new trailer!
YES to both questions!

Mmmmm. It doesnít normally get below 15-20 F here.... I have never blown out the BT flush or the FW inlet. Guess God is watching out for me.

Thanks for the thought.
