Definitely run some more antifreeze in. You will need to set the manifold to the sanitize/ winterize lines and then connect a small piece of hose to the fresh water connection. Open one of the inside faucets and then go outside and start the pump. You should see the antifreeze leaving the jug, you may have to hold the jug level with the utility panel to get it to prime. As was mentioned the cost of a gallon of antifreeze will be alot cheaper than a new manifold. The little bit of water that is mixed in the system will be diluted with anitfreeze.

Since the city water connection is right close to the outside shower, I could probably open that until I get anitfreeze out.

Grumpy recommended a kitchen faucet........just insures you have anti-freeze through out the system. You do need to make sure the outside shower has the pink flow as well. Don't forget the black tank flush..it needs a shot also.
Our first TT we were reluctant to winterize it so we took it to a dealer. Next spring, sprung a big leak.........outside shower had never been winterized
Good luck with gaining knowledge on your rig. Hang in there.
Hate to see this season end...............

when the series of valves are set to normal, and you hook up a city hose, nothing happening is normal, as water should enter when you turn the valves to city, They should have drained the tank so Normal setting the pump should be dry. but if you managed to get some water in, you may have to winterize again to make sure there is none left in from the outside hose connector to the valve, and if you changed the valves perhaps even further in. safer to run thru the winterize which is the bottom right setting on the panel. and check that the water tank is empty, and open plug on hot water tank so you know they emptied it.

RV anti freeze is a lot cheaper than replacing a busted pipe or fitting. If it were my unit, I would re-winterize it and not have to worry about it.
