Winterizing Outdoor Shower Help!

I have a 2013 Zinger and we are trying to winterize it ourselves this year. We had an experienced friend help us but of course nothing ever goes smoothly.

First annoyance... the release hot water valve that is plastic does not budge!!! It is blocked by a pipe and is on a weird angle... any thoughts, words of advise? How do you guys get past this?

I pumped 6 gallons of antifreeze in the Zinger but noticed it did not go through to the outdoor shower lines, it is still full of clear water. Does this have its own tank or release valve? We can not figure where this water is coming from... also we NEVER have used the outdoor shower before, so where is this water coming from?

Thanks for any help or guidance!

First, not sure what you mean by the release hot water valve. A picture may help.
Second, did you set the bypass valves on the hot water heater for winter, drain the hot water heater? Do you have a winterizing kit on your water pump? This saves dumping 6 gallons in your fresh water tank. Whenever you connect city water to your trailer, the outside shower is also connected and ready to use. If you use your fresh water tank, the outside shower is also ready to use. Therefore, water is always in the outside shower water lines whether or not you use it.
Here is a link on how to winterize a rv water system.
If you google how to winterize rv's you will get numerous videos also.

Good luck, be sure your are winterized properly.

X2 in betting the antifreeze is in the water heater.
