winterizing

I would review couple YouTube videos (RV winterizing or travel trailer winterizing) most TTs have basically same needs/issues and not all that difficult.

Not sure what equipt you have. However, I drain the w/h, turn my valves to by-pass w/h, then connect a blow-out valve to fresh water inlet, use 40 lbs from a air compresson, and open each and every faucet, one at a time. Last thing I open is the low-point drains. I then close everything, and do it again. Remove the water filter by pump, drain and clean screen, unhook both ends of water pump. Remember the out side shower faucest, should you have one. To me, no water means no freezing. I do not use anti-freeze. I also remove all drain elbows, and clean.

Water pump/filter location

You may not have a water filter, but I would check by the pump. LOL!

Seriously, though, you should easily be able to figure out where the pump is by listening for it. It is usually hidden behind an access panel. Put some water in the fresh water tank, then turn on the pump and open a faucet. Follow the sound.

If you do have a factory installed filter, my guess is it would be by the pump or under the kitchen sink.
