winterizing CruiseAir

My Beneteau 361 (2002) has a CruiseAir heatpump. The installation and operating instructions give no instructions for winterizing the unit. My boat stays in the water. Does anyone have any advice on how to get the raw water out of the coils after closing the thru-hull? Any other winterizing advice?
Thanks!

Close your through hull and remove the hose and stick it ina gallon of pink antifreeze. Turn the unit on and suck up the antifreeze and you are done!

Thank you. I'll try to do that without losing prime.

agalih, I've run into this same problem. I lost the prim and what a mess. I added a 3 way valve and connected a 3/4 tube with a valve so I could get to a bucket or more workable location
