    well I have a filter under the sink of my MH that is for separate faucet at the sink and for the ice maker. I installed a cut off valve on that water line and isolated it from the regular water line. By doing this I can put the pink stuff in all the other water lines. I also disconnected it at the outside connection and drained the ice make line. Like 730 said u don't want to put it in the ice maker. :laugh: :laugh:

    really, If I want to make ice, I have to fill up the little trays and wait a few hours.

    I disconnect mine at the valve which is behind the outside panel and run the antifreeze until it flowes out the pipe. I disconnect both sides of the valve so water in the line to the freezer drains. I do not run antifreeze in the upper supply line. I also disconnect the power to the line that heats the supply line from the valve to the freezer. The line tends to get brittle if the heat comes on with no water in it. Mine also has a shut off valve which is located inside behind the panel under the fridge which I close and winterize the rest of the MH. When I dewinterize I open the shut off valve and run water until all antifreeze is out of the lower supply line.
