A Fresh Perspective on Winterizing

Hardcore RV winterizing is not a big thing down in my parts as real hard freezes are a rarity. However, like much of the country, over the next few days we will be experiencing that rare hard freeze. I have several friends with trailers so my portable air tank and hose fitting have been making the rounds blowing out RV water lines all across the Coastal Bend, and Wal-Mart finally sold a few gallons of the pink stuff.
I was talking to one friend of mine, who I thought was an experienced RV owner, about winterizing his rig. His response?

"My trailer was already winterized when I bought it 4 years ago."

I'm rarely at a loss for words, this was one of those times.

We haven't had an above freezing day in a few weeks with a quite a number of sub zero temperatures. Even though it's far too late to do anything about it, occasionally I will run through the winterization steps I performed back in October in my head hoping there was nothing I forgot.

Wow why didn't I think of that? Would save me a couple of hours twice a year. Question. Did he de-winterize it before using it the first time or just have awful tasting water for the first 10 trips or so?
