D​id you see the answer I gave you on your previous posting? You drain out the water in the fresh water tank and DON'T put antifreeze in there. Just pump the antifreeze through the system using the winterizing valve on the pump. If you don't have one you can install one. I can direct you in that. Perhaps a phone chat would help clear up any confusion on this. Let me know if you need more.

A phone chat is a lot less money than doing this wrong and having to pay for some expensive repairs as a result. I see this all the time in my own shop. Or pay a mobile tech to come over and do it for you and instruct you how to do it properly. I do this for my shop customers all the time.
