I'm a little confused at what you are after. You said that you want to winterize and yet you are looking for low point drains. In my mind, they are different issues.
I have a 2011 Superlite 31.5 RLTS. To winterize it takes less then 2 gal of RV antifreeze. There are 3 valves under the kitchen sink. They may be hard to see because sometimes the valve handle lays behind the water pipes which requires you to feel for them. There sole purpose is to isolate the hot water tank from your water system. One valve is on the line leading to your hot water tank. Another valve is on a line coming from the hot water tank. The third valve is a bypass valve that lets you put water in all hot water lines without going thru the hot water tank. The two valves that go to and from your hot water tank, you close. The bypass, you open. Make sure that you have drained both the the hot water and the fresh water tank. Leave both valves open until you ready to use your camper again. Next go to your water pump. Mine is in the extreme back of the 5th wheel in a box with a sliding door access. There is two valves there. One lets the water be pumped from the now empty fresh water tank. Turn that valve off. There is a second valve with a section of clear plastic hose on it. That is a suction hose that you stick down into your gal. antifreeze jug. Open that valve and turn on your pump.
Go around and start opening valves one at a time until you have pink fluid coming out of all spigots. Keep an eye on your antifreeze container. It will need refilling. If your unit has an outside shower, make sure you bleed that system too. This whole process takes less then 10 minutes when you know where the valves are.
You didn't say what model you have but I can't imagine that your unit would be much different.
