Winterizing a 292 DBHS

I'm posting this for my sister. She purchased a 2017 292 DBHS and has no idea how to winterize it. I asked her to look into her owners manual and she said it does not tell her how. I'am not familiar with her camper or have I really looked at it so any info would be greatly appreciated. I myself have a FR Cardinal 5th wheel so I'm not totally lost when it comes to winterizing.

Tell her to have it done by a reputable dealer so it is done correctly.

Bypass the water heater, drain water heater, open low point drains until no more water comes out (opening a faucet while doing this makes it go faster), close low point drains, use bypass kit to pump antifreeze in to all the lines, open one faucet at a time until pink stuff is clearly running, do every faucet (hot and cold), shower, toilet, outside shower, etc., pour some antifreeze down all the drains. Done


Next spring pump freshwater through lines until pink clears, un-bypass water heater, sanitize fresh water system, ready to go camping.

Thanks for the replies, after 10 minutes at my sisters house I located the hot water tank and emptied it, turned the by pass valve and located the pump under her sink. 10 minutes later all done. Entire system now winterized, $100 bucks saved.

Exactly, it's not rocket science.
