X17A Water Pump question

I took this photo of the water pump and as a newbie need to know what the hose and extra turn off valve are for? Thanks in advance for any help.

That's for winterizing. In summer you keep the valve on the extra hose turned off, and the valve to your fresh tank on. To winterize, you turn off the valve to the fresh tank, and turn the valve to the extra hose on. Then the hose gets put into a bottle of RV anti-freeze. You turn the pump on to push the anti-freeze though the plumbing system.
