Can water go through the line when removed so I can flush through to ice maker?
the pink anti-freeze is vegetable based, non-toxic and can be consumed without harm...although I wouldn't recommend it. so just clean your ice trays with hot water and soap.
as for the filter...replace it before you flush the linesas you'll never get all of the residual pink stuff out of the filter and thus never get all of it out of that line. you should have been given a cap that seals the filter connection and allows the line to be flushed (or even used without a filter). if you don't have one contact your selling or any dealer for a replacement.
btw, the shop who did the work should have removed the filter and capped the connection BEFORE winterizing. our coach has two water filters and I remove, discard and cap the connections before sending the pink stuff thru the lines. leaving the filters in place doesn't hurt anything but it causes you to use more pink stuff.
