I blow out all of my lines before running antifreeze through the system. I made up my own brass fitting that connects my compressor to the city water inlet .... walmart or camping world sell plastic versions.

I turn the compressor on and one by one I open up each water source until only air comes out.

Do taps, shower, toilet and all low point drains ... don't forget the one being the water heater ... Under the washer..

Turn the washer in briefly until dry air blows thru.

Repeat the process with antifreeze. Making sure to pour a small amount of antifreeze down each trap.

Before storing unit open all low point drains and remove filter canister.

Draining antifreeze from system before storing will reduce the amount out flushing required in the spring.

Many of us in northern climates choose to error on the safe side
