Why bother?? if the water in the traps freeze all that will happen is it
frezes... it'll expand up the trap, but that's all,

Freezing water is only a problem when it's got nowhere to expand to,

But if you must... any antifreeze will do, you'll only be using a little
bit, bog standard car stuff, of you could goto a place that sells stuff for
larger motorhomes, and get some water system safe antifreeze sold for the
yank motorhomes, where they winterize their systems by pumping a non toxic
antifreeze into the water system.
