changing the oil in the commander?

Alright its gettin to be time for my first oil change in my commander 1000. I know the fill cap place is under the passenger seat but where is my drain plug and filter at? What filter would you guys reccommend I use? Was also wondering if I should use a different kind of oil for the upcoming winter? Unfortantely my commander will be gettin kicked out of the garage so the duramax has a place to park. Which means the commander will be out in the below 0 temps durning the winter.

Any other tips I should know on changing the oil?

I use Mobil 1 Synthetic, Book calls for 5-40, I couldn't find that so I used one 0-40 and one 10-40, I bought the Filters from Motorcycle super store I think. It was cheaper to buy 20 than 10 due to free freight, If I remember they wanted $48 for freight on 10 and free for twenty of them. They we HiFlo Filtro brand filters, 800 Renegade uses the same filter.
