Argh! Winterization plug different size than should be

Had another thread trying to figure out water in our 'new' coach...

I finally figured out how to drain the main water tank. To sanitize, manual says to attach the "provided short hose" to the winterization port (see photo). But to fill the tank, I'm to use the city water hookup port with same hose. But the hose is not compatible with the winterization thingy. So can I put my bleach water in through the city water hookup to sanitize my tank?

What the heck use is the winterization then? Why is water coming out of it when I untwist the gray plug?

The gray twist plug from the 'winterize' opening sits loosely inside a standard hose cap. This shows just how much smaller is the winterize opening.

I had a fresh water dump with a pex tube exiting the water bay to which I attached a shark bite fitting for a hose connection.
