Winterizing the washer dryer setup

We have not installed a washer dryer in the RV. However itís been pre plumbed etc...

Do they run water into these pipes when they manufacture the RVs?

Iím just trying to determine whether I have to do anything special when I winterize. Weíre going to pump pink thru the Kantleak.

What I always did with the Challenger was to remove the panel covering the washer rough in and open the water valve to allow first air to expel water and then pink stuff.

I will say I never had an issue because opening the low point drains always cleared the water out of those lines and my added effort was more for me than anything else.

Thatís going to make winterizing a real pita. We use the cabinet as a pantry and have all kinds of stuff in it.
Is there a valve down lower that I can shut once I drain / pink it so that water doesnít go into it when I use the RV?

As I said the added effort was more for me than anything. Check once, if the lines drain with the low point drain you should be good in subsequent years. Our cabinet was for safety items such as fire blankets, first aid kit etc so we took that time to check those items for serviceability and need of replacement.
