Thanks for any advice.

Washer: run a hot and cold fill with the antifreeze in the system (not a complete fill cycle to save some antifreeze). then, a spin to get most of the water / antifreeze solution out. I do that twice.

Ice maker: My manual says pull the water line to the ice maker and no need for antifreeze. Something I have to investigate today on where the connection within the icemaker is and how to access it.

I first remove the main filter and the filter in the refrigerator, then blow all the lines out with compressed air. Then I pump RV antifreeze till I see pink coming out of each of the faucets including the water in the door. As far as the washer I do the same. Then don't forget the traps and the hot water to the front if equipped.

If you follow the directions for winterizing in one of the links provided from this sticky top of this forum with much more info it should help keep your coach for the winter months.

Forgot about washer: you need to cycle enough RV antifreeze through the washer to fill the P Trap on the washer drain. And put antifreeze in all other P-traps (sink drains, shower).
