To add to what Scott posted
See this pic of the back of the water heater. This is the on valve water heater bypass system Sunline used on many of the camper. Scottís is the 2 valve system.

The bottom valve on your water heater is the bypass valve, assuming yours only has the one bottom valve. The lever on the valve handle is horizontal for normal flow, you flip it vertical to bypass the water heater. This valve is inside the camper at the back of the water heater.
Since this will be your first winterizing, let us know the procedure you are thinking of using so we can confirm you have all the needs covered. If you need help just ask.
Also not sure exactly what you are stating here with this sentence
And was also wondering if I run the antifreeze solely off the battery as told to me by a friend who also owns a Sunline?
. I think you may mean, do you run the water pump off the battery to pump in the RV pink antifreeze? If that is what you meant, you can run the water pump off the battery or the onboard power converter. Either way the pump will run.
That said, not all Sunlines have the winterizing kit at the water pump. Some have added it, others just unscrew the pump suction line off the pump, screw a suction hose on with one end in the jug of pink antifreeze and then screw the other end on the pump. Take a pic of your water pump and post and we can tell what you have. You really do not want to fill the fresh tank with the antifreeze and draw it in to into the camper that way.
