I have owned two pop ups. I winterized them myself.
I now own a '13 Sunseeker 3100. I would prefer to winterize it myself. I figure it's essentially the same steps as the pop ups but with some more stuff (hot water heater, an extra sink, toilet, shower, outside shower, gray tank, black tank).
In reading the manual, it's looks like there are 2 options:
- use compressed air
- don't use compressed air (this is what I did with the pop ups)
It looks like the compressed air option is far easier. It looks like I use antifreeze - but it doesn't go in the fresh tank or from there through the plumbling lines to the water taps. That seems like a huge advantage to me (not having antifreeze "before" the water taps). It's that much easier to flush out next spring.
However, here's the problem, I don't own an air compressor. In looking at Harbor Freight, I notice they have 2 that are cheaper:
- Pancake Air Compressor - 3 Gallon, 100 PSI
- 3 Gallon Air Compressor - 1/3 HP, 100 PSI, Oilless
I know nothing (& I mean zero, zip, zilch) about air compressors.
Would either of these work for that purpose?
