Red and blue drain lines

On my Solera under the house on the left rear there are 2 drains one red the other blue. What the heck?

Just a guess but I would think the Blue one is the Cold water Low Point Drain and the Red one is the Hot Water Low Point Drain if they come out underneath somewhere. You likely want to drain these lines and then close the valves and continue with pumping in the pink stuff through the Hot and Cold lines. There should be a Clear Plastic line off the Suction side of the pump that you put into a jug of Pink Anti Freeze to allow the pump to pick up and pump through the Hot and Cold lines. Don't forget to close the IN and OUT to the Hot Water Heater and open the BY-PASS to allow the Pink stuff to by-pass the heater. Need to pull the plug on the heater to drain the water so it don't freeze.
Do you have a manual for your rig?

Yeah Dennis, thanks! I do have manuals and have read about draining the water heater but nothing on the plumbing layout on the house. I think you have covered the the issue very well and I thank you for your response.

Just a add on note on draining the waterheater, first pop the pressure
vavle to release the pressure before you unscrew the plug at the bottom
and you can also inspect the ano rod at this time if your waterheater has
a ano rod. They should be replaced each year.

The reason to release the pressure first is so you do not take a bath
when the botom plug is removed. Oh how do I know this (at least it
as a hot day when I did it.)

Know what you mean about manuals, I just helped my daughter and hubby winterize their new Jayco TT. The instruction in the manual was not even close to the actual. Ended up just going through the unit to find each component and using good old common sense to Get er Done.
Sorry about leaving out the bit on the Water heater. Although, stuff like that can and does does have a way of sticking in one's mind for future reference.
Like, Don't stand up under the slide-outs!
