Winterizing

I have a 2009 crossroads Seville fifth wheel that I just purchased and unfortunately it is time to winterize
At the water hookup I have three hose connections
City water. Flush kit and a third no label plus there are three valves trying to figure out how to go about the process

Sorry that I can not help you out.
I suspect that the unlabeled hose connection is for winterizing (sucking up the antifreeze) and the 3rd blue valve is the 3-way valve to divert the pump input to that hose connection.
Did the dealer provide you with a Manual?

You know that none of the three are used for winterization except to pull the mesh filter out and push in the plastic pin in the middle. That will release the water inside that line. Google how to winterize a 5th wheel. It's very simple. You will see the step by step process. Then if you have questions, come back here and ask.

Sorry, but googling will not help. Many Rv's of the same make use different ways of winterizing. You need to find the instructions specific to your Rv model and year.

Maybe someone with that setup will chime in. I will not be of much help as mine is the older style.

I was hoping to find the correct Owners Manual here but had no luck: Owner Manuals | Crossroads RV

Try this link, page 44. Most owners manuals are the same.

Howdy, we have a 2011 VF 35CK11 that is almost identical to your photo. The middle hose hookup is for RV antifreeze on ours. I don't see a water heater bypass valve, it could be behind the hose or accessed from the backside of this panel. You can fabricate or re-purpose an old garden hose to suck the antifreeze from your jug (I like the 3.96 litre size- cheaper and you always have enough- uses about half a big jug). You want to turn the other winterizer valve also to allow the onboard water pump to suck up the antifreeze. Don't forget the water heater draining and if equipped water filter. Let me know if you have other questions.

Hi Jim
I also have a 2009 Seville and to answer your question, the middle port is for the antifreeze. Just insert a small section of hose, just long enough to put into a bottle of RV antifreeze, then turn your pump switch on and it will draw the antifreeze into the plumbing system. Make sure you turn the hot water tank bypass valve, as well as the yellow valve behind the hot water tank. This will prevent pumping all the antifreeze into your hot water tank. Then just open up each tap until the antifreeze comes out and you should be good. If you have any other questions, please let me know. I can send you my phone number if you would like. Happy winterizing.
