Another winterization question

After I've drained the fresh water tank, opened all the low point drains (and closed them), emptied the water filter in the utility compartment, pumped pink through all the faucets - frig-washing machine, shower, and stools,
why was there no pink into the empty water filter housing and can there be any water in the lines between the city water connection, the fresh water tank, and the filter housing? Possibly even in the sewer flush line?

I tried to blow out the lines first but my little 12V air pump didn't have enough capacity so I just went on to pumping through several gallons of pink.

Hope I haven't missed anything. Keep wondering why no pink went through the water filter housing, even though that would be a waste of a quart of two of pink.

I must have made it alright through last winter but these questions are what I get for thinking.

I think I explained that small pipe from city water to filter in the big winterization thread I post every year at this time.
The empty filter should have anti in it and if you take filter screen out of water fill hose entrance you will see a small peg that's held in with spring and you take a pencil with erasa and push very gently on peg and duck cause your going to get drowned with pink stuff that should winterize the small pipe.
Seeing you have no anti in filter open it up and just blow air into the city water entrance and that should take care of it.

Always forget to mention this is on a 2015 4018 Dutch Star. I've tried several times to get this information at the bottom of my posts but for some reason it never works.

Thanks 007.
