Automatic Pushbutton Winterizing Valve?

I too have an 87 25' Sovereign with an "Automatic Pushbutton Winterizing Valve".

Did you ever find out what this is for and/or where you can get a replacement. Mine's not leaking but I hesitate to mess with it until I know what it's supposed to do.

We have the exact same thing in our '87 Excella. But ours doesn't leak and functions OK...So far. The comapny is probably out of business. If you are handy with plumbing you could probably replace it with any bypass valve. Where is it leaking?
