Winterization question, residential fridge

I plan to winterize the Allure when we return from WDW in mid December. I've read up on how I must winterize the Aqua Hot, the washer and the Techma toilet. I will blow out the system with air but I will use the RV antifreeze (I am told up to 10 gallons may be needed).

What I have read about the fridge says to let the ice maker fill with RV antifreeze which I would rather not do. With the residential fridge in my previous coach, I could get to the water line connection which allowed me to use air to clear the ice maker line, then disconnect the line before using any RV antifreeze. With the Allure, I cannot find where the fridge water supply line is located since there is no access behind the fridge.

So, are there any tricks to winterize the Amana with water in the door? I'd like to clear those lines with air then isolate them before I pump anti freeze into the water lines for the Aqua Hot.

Remove the left drawer(I think,if not it would be the right drawer),should be a cutoff valve behind there.
