A prewinter question

So we bought a 2015 pinnical with a residential refrigerator that has an ice maker. so I found one valve under the ks the second valve behind the stove and a drain valve under the Rv under the refrigerator area . So my question is how do I drain from the ice maker solenoid valve back to the drain valve . This is our 2nd camper
Just never had to do anything to a ice maker before

The owners manual says to remove the water system filter as well as the refrigerator water filter and run RV antifreeze through the water dispenser and ice maker. I downloaded a .pdf from this site below. See page 111 to 114.

That manual is for the 2016 Pinnacle which has a different model refrigerator. I also have a 2015 Pinnacle. I haven't winterized the refrigerator yet, but here is hoe I think it will have to be done. There is a test button on the bottom front of the ice maker. As you are blowing air or adding antifreeze you will have to continually push the test button until you only air, not any water come out; or until antifreeze starts to load into the ice tray. Be sure to remove and wipe antifreeze from the tray and any other plastic parts as it will stain the plastic.

I have an appointment with my dealer in earlier August and I will confirm this with them. I will report here if there is any different procedure.

I don't think they want anti-freeze run into the ice-maker. Even when it was winterized at the factory they did not run anti-freeze into it. The NORCOLD ice-maker was easy since you could access the valve from the back of the fridge and drain the line.

I would go with the air option or keep the low point drain open and cycle the ice-maker with the reset button so the water drains back.
