Winterize refrigerator

Have a full size residential refrigerator with ice maker and water in my 2019 Jayco 315 RLT, any suggestions on how to drain the water line for winterization?

On my 375, I just run rv anitfreeze thru it. I purchased a bypass water filter for it. Pop out the water filter in the fridge and click in the bypass cartridge. It takes about 2 glasses from the water/ice in the door dispenser before the pink pop starts flowing. Once I get it flowing good there, I'll cycle the icemaker and pretty much immediately the pink pop comes right out. I use a paper towel to absorb it out of the ice maker tray and cycle it one more time just to make sure. same thing again, paper towel to absorb it out of the ice tray and you're done. This is my 3rd winter doing it this way and I've had no issues come camping season.

Where did you buy the bypass filter?

FWIW, the Whirlpool refrigerators do not need a filter in them for the water to get to the dispenser. We just remove the filter when we winterize.

If the whirlpool fridge doesn't need a filter in there for water to come out of the dispenser, I wonder what it is in there for. You wouldn't think it would work if it wasn't installed.
I have the Fridgidare fridge in mine and it wont't work unless theres a filter in it. Same goes for my Fridgidare in my house. Unless it's a whirlpool thing. Which can be a good idea.
Anyway, I found my bypass filter off Amazon. I kinda stumbled on it one day.

I assume (I know) that when you remove the filter it goes into bypass. Wouldn't be that difficult to engineer it that way.

Forgot to add, our Samsung at home works the same way.
