Greetings,
Mr. ps. "... cheap vodka was the stuff...". Hmmm...I suppose the ONE advantage of that is in the spring you wouldn't need to drain and flush the system or fiddle around with a small bottle. Fire water on tap although a hot rum works on those cool spring days as well...

Many RV dealers stock HW heater winterizing kits.

These are a bypass for the the HW heater so it can simply be drained , and the HW system filled with pink from the water pump..
Next year , simply moving 2 tiny lever valves and you are all set.

Beware , heating the pink stuff may cause it to solidify a bit and then be really difficult to flush out.

It will also solidify if in contact with air , so tossing it into a water tank, just in case everything may not have drained , may require living with pink water as repeated flushing only thins it out.
