Do not put RV antifreeze in the fresh water tank. The stuff is too hard to flush out when you de-winterize. Just open the drain valve and leave it open. Use the levelers to raise the side of the RV that is opposite the drain valve and then raise the front then the rear end of the rig to get all the water out.

If you look into the utility compartment there is a position on the Anderson valve you use to winterize. You connect the antifreeze jug with a small hose to the fresh water input port. Then turning on the water pump and systematically opening the faucets will pump from the jug into the water system. You also need to bypass and then drain the hot water heater, on my bounder there was a valve under the kitchen sink to do that. The fresh water tank needs to be drained too. The whole house water filter should be removed too. If you have a washing machine that needs to be winterized too Lastly you have to get some of the antifreeze into the ice maker on the fridge or drain that water line. My Bounder took about 4 to 5 gallons to do the whole thing.
If you have the time I suggest you go thru this thread the winterizing process for a 2016 bounder is mentioned in depth and a lot of other bounder issues it's a must reed for 16 Bounder owners.
