Red face Water Pump 2007 Cougar 29RLS

I am hoping someone can help me out. previously I had winterized my TT by putting 6 gallons of anti freeze in my holding tank and letting the pump circulate it through the system. I have heard it's bad to put it in your holding tank so i want to suck it out of the jug but I am unable to locate my pump. Any idea's where i can find it?

The pump will probably be located near your kitchen sink, at floor level and behind a removeable panel, door or drawer. You can further pinpoint its location by listening to the vibration when it is running.
Several members use this same method as you previously did to winterize - by putting RV antifreeze in the FW tank and then pumping it through the system. There will be some of the pink stuff left in the tank after this is done. As long as the FW tank is thoroughly drained, flushed and sanitized a few times with clean, fresh water, I don't think there is much cause for concern about it being "bad". Using this method requires considerably more RV antifreeze as opposed to using just a jug.
The antifreeze sits in your water lines all winter so I am not sure what the concern would be.

I have a Cougar 31SQB and my pump is in the bed room on the side of the bed. One side of the bed has a "laundry shoot" into the storage area and the other side is the pump. I tried like heck to get mine to pump from that area but the hose is all crammed in there with a kink so it was a serious pain in the butt last winter. I am going to dump antifreeze into the fresh water tank and do it that way.

I don't know why that would be bad? They recommend putting a little at the bottom of that tank as well as the gray and black tanks. When I flushed everything out I ran water and bleach in the fresh water tank and lines and let it sit 24 hours. After that I pumped that out and put in water and some Arm and Hammer baking soda for 24 hours. Pumped that out after that and never had issues with taste or smell.
