4 Questions for Winterizing (JamieGeek?)

We are going to be using our 2015 Vegas 24.1 over Thanksgiving at the Naval academy FAMPCAMP. When we get back to Mount Joy PA I'll have to winterize before storing. Was going to have it done an RV service center, but decided to do it myself. I do have 4 questions I'd like answered before engaging (JamieGeek probably can answer):

1. What size socket or wrench do I need for the water tank drain plug?

2. What size tubing to run from the antifreeze bottle to the water pump siphon pex tubing?

3. What size fitting do I need for the water pump antifreeze input pex tubing?

4. How much RV antifreeze? (2 galloons?)

What's that got to do with Ed's winterizing questions?

Wow, and sorry but I don't have all the answers:
1. Don't know as I use a crescent wrench on the plug (This pack of replacements says 1/2").
2. Don't remember as that was a few years ago when I picked all that up--just went to Home depot and bought parts that fit
3. Same as #2 just picked up some from the Depot and used what worked
4. I usually buy 3 gallons and always left with 1 full so yes: 2 gallons

RV is all covered and all put away for the winter--I can look the next time I visit it.

My plastic plug takes a 15/16
As for the tubing etc. I bought a "kit" from CW that came with the value and tubing. It attached between the fresh water value and the pump.
Two gallons will be fine unless you forget to turn the hot water values. This year was the first time I did not turn one of the values all the way, so needed three gal.

Those look like the fitting and hose that I'm using as well.
