Voyager35L Winterizing

My 2008 Voyage 35 L drains antifreeze when I winterize the unit. It has an extra drain hose under the chassis that is not listed on the specs. Winnebago techs have not heard of such a drain. When I siphon antifreeze into the unit with the pump it drains out of this extra hose. To winterize I must put more in than needed because it drains out of the hose almost as fast as it enters. I do winterize the unit, but a lot of antifreeze spills into a bucket. I plugged the hose to see what happens and antifreeze overflows into the rv. It should have only three hoses under the unit...two water and one vent for the water tank. This has four. Photos were sent to Winnebago Industries and they could not solve the problem. It was purchased new and came off of their assembly line. Any 35 L owners have this problems. There are four drains under mine. Not in their specs.

I wonder if the extra hose is actually supposed to be hooked up to something and is not meant to be a drain hose, but acks like one because it was never connected to whatever it was supposed to be connected to?

Angry Antifreeze drain Voyager35L

I think it is connected wrong. The Winnebago tech wouldn't admit it since it is 6 months out of warranty and I asked for authorization to have it checked. He said call back in spring and he will try some things with water.
