Avalanche mystery water port

We are on our first trip with our new to us 2012 Avalancche 345TG.
Finding many differences from our last 1997 Wildwood 5th wheel and really liking it!
There is one water hose connection we can't figure out.
In the water well on the side wall is an unmarked hose connection. I chased the plastic line back to the water pump inlet strainer.
Don't know how to put a picture in so hoping someone may know.
Thanks

I thinking it is the winterize hose connection. Get a short section connect to it put other end in anti freeze turn valve and water pump will suck the anti freeze

Do you have a "water center".
Fresh water supply.
Black tank flush
Valve to adjust water system use - ours has 4 positions:

City– Pressure feed fixtures from 3/4" hose connection on backflow preventer.
Normal – Pump from the on-board tank to the fixtures using on-board pump.
Tank – Pressure fill the tank from 3/4" hose connection at backflow preventer. 100 gallons in 7 minutes.
Sanitize/Winterize – Draw in sanitizers and winterizing fluids from a bucket utilizing the
on-board pump.

take a look at this posting - may help has a water system diagram in it

I'd tend to go with a winterize port too. What do the 2 valves below it say? I can't make them out. Is one "Winterize"?
