Our boat has belt driven diaphram pumps for both the fresh water and sea water taps - so no problems with freezing pump damage. However, I do empty the 140 gal tank and blow the water out of the entire system with a compressor, eliminating the need to use the nasty pink stuff.
A trick that has worked for us each winter, is to first mix a 5 lb container of Damp-Rid and a 5 lb bag of scented cat litter 50%-50%. Then pour the mix into several open shoebox sized plastic containers and place them in each cabin. This absorbs moisture and the scented cat litter keeps things smelling fresh.
Whenever checking the boat, I lightly stir the mix to keep the dry stuff on top. Just empty the containers in the spring and rinse out for use next season.
