Ice maker winterize?

I winterized yesterday. Drained everything, Blew out with air, added antifreeze. When I got the camper new in March, there was pink ice in the ice maker on the LG residential refrigerator. I can't get the ice maker to cycle by holding the reset button. I have had it cycle before to get it jump started to make ice. How do I get antifreeze into the line between the cabinet and the fridge and into the ice maker?

On our coach with a Samsung fridge, I just put the hose into the bottle of antifreeze then turn the pump on. I make sure the ice maker is on and it will cycle it thru the system in about 4-5 hrs.

I decided to keep the valves under the sink to the ice maker off. My ice maker has never had water in it. I didn’t want to have to winterize it and then fuss with getting the antifreeze out. I dump my home ice into the tray / bucket before every trip and always have left overs.

Underneath the icemaker near the front is a test button. you can force a cycle with the press of a button. it takes about 4-6 cycles to get the pink stuff to come out full strength.

Cell phone on selfie helps find it. Leave icetray in to catch water and make clean up easier
