Just drain it. No water = nothing to freeze in the block.

You put RV or Marine antifreeze (propylene glycol) in a pail and suck it up through a fake-aLake, or you pour some in through the thermostat opening after you take the housing off and the thermostat out. First you would drain the block and any heaters or shower lines you might have.
I don't put antifreeze in mine. I just drain everything well and then drive the trailered boat around to slosh out what ever might have been left in a crevasse.

after you drain your block, heater ,shower , remove your jtube from your thermostat housing and pour the antifreeze in it with a funnel....there is no need to remove the housing or the t stat......... as far as the walters vdrive remove the intake and exit hose and blow or suck out the water , no need to remove the drain plugs nothing will come out after you do the previous
