19h winterizing problem

Hello,
We recently purchased a 19h and are attempting to winterize it for the first time. We followed all of the directions but the water pump doesn't pull the antifreeze into the lines!. There isn't any suction on the hose. We moved the valve for the clear hose and performed the hot water heater bypass. Does anyone have any thoughts on what the problem could be?. Thank you in advance.

Is the pump on and do you have power to it?

Yes, we can here it run. We actually refilled the fresh water tank verify it was primed and it worked fine.

Did you close the valve from the fresh water tank?

The VALVE at the pump should switch to select either the fresh water tank or the hose that you stick down into the pink antifreeze.

Our unit has 2 valves at the pump. one to shut off the water tank and one to open the bypass tube which allows the plastic tube to suck.

Yeah, I turned the fresh water valve. I only see one, does anyone know if there is another?. Thank you for the responses thus far.

The clear hose coming from the water pump goes in the jug. The valve on this must be open. The valve on the line coming from the fresh water tank must be closed for the antifreeze to draw from the jug.

If you just cant get the siphon hose to work (and the water heater is bypassed for sure). You can remove the "suction" hose from the pump itself, and screw your own siphon hose directly right there.
