Winterizing question

Hello All, Sorry if this has been asked recently, but I didn't see it in the first few pages. I have a 2018 Redhawk 26XD. I want to blow out water from the pipes before I add antifreeze. What setting do I select at the water panel (City, City Fill, Normal, Sanitize/Winterize)? I know I'll use the Sanitize/Winterize when I siphon the antifreeze in to the system but what setting to use just to blow out the water first? Thanks for the help.

Use winterize but no higher than 40 lbs. pressure. Air will go through the pump, might have to prime the pump after by filling the suction hose.

By the description it sounds like you have a Nautilus panel. I have attached the manual that shows step by step on the procedure.

I use 3 of them. First, "City" to blow out all the normal lines and faucets. Then "City Fill" to blow out the line going to the water tank. Then, "Sanitize/Winterize to blow out the lines to the pump. Last, I hook up to the Black Flush connector, and blow that out too.

When blowing out through "City", don't forget to open your low point drains, inside shower and outside shower too.

My goal is to get as much water out of the lines first, to keep from diluting the AF, then once all have been blown out, pump the AF through all the lines.

X2, I also flip the water heater valve open too. This gets any standing water cleared that is behind a valve.
