Question Winterizing a 2012 Windjammer 3008w

Hey all...just wondering if someone could give me pretty much step by step instructions on how to winterize the trailer. Previous trailers I've always had local campers do (we kind of have a winterizing party and go from trailer to trailer), but since we bought this one brand new I really want to make sure it's done properly! Not that I don't trust them! Anywho....please help??? Thanks a bunch.

well i dont have your model but most have low point drains for starters .
then buy the blow out plug apparatus to hook onto your city water connection. take out water filter if you have one dump water out of holder .
drain the hot water heater
add 20 to 30 psi to recently installed apparatus and blow all the lines out . be sure to hold toilet flush down to flush that out . and outside shower if you have one.
buy some rv antifreeze and dump in all the traps .... kitchen sink,bathroom sink, shower or tub ,and some in the toilet to keep the seals moist leave in bowl for winter .

did i miss anything ?

previous post is the common approach .
heres how i do mine cause thats just what i do .

drain hot water heater . turn bypass valve . pull suction line off of water pump .
pull filter out of filter housing dump out water. drain low point lines . buy three gallons of rv antifreeze . install suction tube i made on suction side of water pump .
stick hose in rv anti freeze gallon turn on water pump.
start opening all taps one at a time till pink runs through .
flush toilet till pink runs leave a little in bowl to keep seals fresh . pour some in shower drain.
run outside shower . whatever you have left i again dump in sink drains .
done

Yes,the black tank rinser,they need anti-freeze as well. With enclosed bellys you cant see the plumbing route of the hoses and if the spray nozzel is self draining! Force anti thru this system or not ,your call,(Big Mess) if you guess wrong,come spring! Youroo!!
