Post winterization question

Winterized the 17 foot camper this weekend. Went smooth as glass (thank you Viking for having a pump bypass and hose already there). I only had to really use 2 gallons. My question is at the end. I did the outside shower last. The pump then sucked about 15 - 20 seconds of air as the bottle emptied and I walked back into the trailer to turn off the pump. The fact the pump did run dry after sucking 2 gallons of anti-freeze should not be a problem should it?

Just make sure you dump some antifreeze into all the drain traps and some into toilet
