Cool HELP!! 2018 Lantern 202RD Trying to winterize

So I should've bought a cabin as this experience is nothing short of horrible.

I don't see where I can hookup nor install a valve so I can introduce anti-freeze into the system. Any help would be appreciated.

FYI...Camping World just wants to make the sale then leaves you high and dry!!!

I think what might have to be done is to access the water pump directly to install a pick up tube to pump the solution through the system.
Some of the TT owners will have the scoop on how to do this.

There are youtube videos that show you step by step. I use both the water pump antifreeze bypass kit and the city water hand pump method. You will need to buy the water pump by pass it and the hand pump and 2 or 3 gallons of antifreeze.
You will need to make sure you black and gray tanks are clean and empty.

Drain and bypass hot water heater. Drain fresh water tank and low level water lines.

If you have one, make sure you address the spray port. Draining the system does not drain the spray port.
