No. That hose in the pic goes from the waterbox to the resonator.

Service mgr at dealer told me you don't have to pull any hoses, just run anti freeze in the flush port and it will get in there. That's all I've done for 10 years and have never had a problem, and my temps go to 30 below zero.

antifreeze cant get in the charge air part of the IC
and if there is enough condensation water there it would damage the IC
although it does not seem likely

I have always run anti-freeze in through flush point for the cooling system, but in the manual it suggests compressed air to blow out the water. (I know OP is asking about charge air side not this). Not sure I trust blowing out? How could that clear out the residual water sitting in the bottom of the waterbox? Surely the air skims across the surface, goes up and over to resonator and straight out. Leaving water in the bottom of the waterbox?
Just thinking out loud.

yes antifreeze in the water box
IMO with out it your baffle may be damaged

I personally pull my IC every season and clean/dry it out, reinstall in the spring. I do the antifreeze pump trick first, don't trust just pumping air through the lines. Also lube that TB...sucks when it sticks
