I got this one from HF - 3 gal. 1/3 HP 100 PSI Oilless Pancake Air Compressor


Very lightweight, plenty of power to blow out the water lines and it's got enough power to bring my rear tires up to 80psi (takes a little while, but not really an issue).
It's small and light enough that I carry it in the motorhome's storage compartment.

If you look for HF coupons you can buy it for $39, or if you have a 20% off coupon you can get it for around $47.

My small compressor is my small shop-vac that has both suck and blow. In fact I use it to blow out the through hull valves on my cruiser. For both the cruiser and the camper I use the suction to clear the lines after draining with the low points open.

You don't need a great big industrial model...between 3-5 gal is more than enough as it will give you upwards of 100 psi. For winterizing your plumbing I read somewhere and do it myself that max through the plumbing is 50 PSI and max for my tires is also 50 psi. I have a knob on mine for setting the psi limits. I got mine at Canadian Tire which makes it a Mastercraft Product for I think it was $75. but I bet if you change the paint from blue to red or green and stencil another name on it, it will work just the same.
