Need male fitting and hose for winterizing

Hi I have a female opening on the end of a white hose off the water
Pump. Can't find a simple male fitting with a clear hose
To go into the pink gallon container.

I see this but appears not to work?

You donít give us a lot of information but is it possible that your fitting is just a dust cap? There is really no reason to have any fitting at all on a winterizing line. It just needs to be a hose long enough to stick it into the antifreeze jug.

Is that bottom (circled) connection on the braided hose the suction line? And is the shut-off there to the fresh water tank?

there is a white hose with a female end that is used just to winterize. i guess it goes right to suction side of pump and activates if the rotate a small shut off closed. it shut off open
the whte hose with female end not used at all. this is a quick winterizing hose but i can't find a male on amazon with a clear hose for the pink gallon jug

Go down to Lowes (or wherever).
Buy this:
https://www.lowes.com/pd/B-K-1-2-in-...ing/1000505043
https://www.lowes.com/pd/EZ-FLO-1-2-...ing/1000365035

You may be able to get the tubing by-the-foot.

Put the tubing on the barb.
Screw in the male adapter.
Stick the other end of the tubing in the antifreeze jug
Open the isolation valve
Start the pump
Antifreeze flows into the discharge header and Bob's your Uncle - you're winterizing.

What I was trying to get at is if that is the suction line, just stick it into the bottle of antifreeze... what's with having another hose? If it don't fit, cut the jug open or dump it into a wide mouthed jar.

kurt recommended the ext hose (will buy at lowes as someone here found) so that when removed it does not drip anywhere and the pink stuff sits on the floor and not my bed or holding it ..
