I believe you can purchase Blue and Red coloured pex. When I replaced the copper with pex in our '74 - 31' side bath our local hardware did not have pex in the two colours. I purchased 2 areosol cans of paint - 1 blue and 1 red and sprayed long lengths of pex before making any cuts. I found this helped a lot to have the coloured lines when you ran them in the trailer and attempted to make connections while standing on your head and balancing a flash light and crimping tool. Just a thought for you on your A/S.
Regarding Antifreeze - it is cheap vs. repairing / replacing plumbing.
Don't do away with shut offs under sinks, etc. Someday if you have trouble with a tap and cannot get replacement parts or a new fixture for a few days you can shut down the individual tap that is faulty and still run your pressure system to keep other taps, toilet, hot water tank, etc operational.
Just my 2 cents worth!!
