Norcold icemaker drain

I am in the process of draining my system, but have an issue with the ice maker in the Norcold. I believe the Solenoid is in the exterior cupboad with the gas exhaust. It has a valve but I am unsure since most of the dicussion on this relates to disconnecting pipes, not simply opening a valve. I will try and post the pictures I have taken!

When I winterize ours, I disconnect both water lines at the solenoid valve and let them drain the water out. I leave them disconnected untill I am ready to go camping again. The water from the icemaker will drain out without any help. The water line from the pressure side should be disconnected at the other end (usually under the sink @ the filter) and drained out. the valve should drain without any other problems.
Good Luck,

I disconnected both lines at the valve. With the input line pointed away from the coach I bumped the pump a couple of times until pink stuff came out. I blew on the output (line from valve to ice maker) line a few seconds. Reconnected the lines & let the ice maker go through one cycle & then raised the wire bar in the ice maker turning it off.
