How to winterize 2017 Rockwood windjammer 3008w

I am wondering where the valve is to winterize my 2017 Rockwood windjammer 3008w . I read it was behind the filter system underneath the bathroom sink . Does it have a line that goes into the antifreeze already on it or do I need to buy one to use .

Moved thread from the Welcome Mat section to the Rockwood sub-forum since the OP is asking for model-specific information.

How many ports are on te outside of the tt? 2 or 3 if 3, one is city water, one is black tank flush and 1 is for AF. You need to go under the vanity sink if that's where your water pump is and move the selector lever adjacent to the inlet side of the pump to the only other position, to enable the af to be sucked into the pump. If 2 ports, do same thing ,but place the tube into your jug of af. If 3 ports, place jug on suitable stand placing jug close to af port. It will prime way better than trying to pump it from ground level. We both have V's and mines a year older, should be very similar

The typical solution for winterizing is that, on the input line to the water pump is a selector valve that selects between two inputs for the water pump:
--A line coming from the fresh water tank
--a 2-3 foot piece of flexible tubing.
This valve may be recognized by the fact that it has THREE ports, input from fresh water tank, input from flexible tubing, and output to fresh water pump.

Sometimes the flexible tubing is detached, laying nearby, and the third port is closed with a screw-on cap.

Have you found the water pump yet? Post a picture of the plumbing near it.
