I agree

Yes, Blow out the lines, then winterize with RV antifreeze. Recapture it from your low point drains using the compressed air. That should get most of it back. Then close low point drains and capture the kitchen and bathroom circuits by opening the faucets into a sufficient size container under slight air pressure < 40 psi. Your only loss would be your toilet circuits.

Remember this, if you blow your lines out first, no measurable water present to dilute anti-freeze introduced, therefore, the antifreeze you recapture is good for reuse, if it wasn't it would freeze up in the first application, right!

if you value your time at less than 9 bucks for 2 gallons of Antifreeze reclaiming then sure you can do what you think is best for teh environment i guess. my hourly wage is more than the trouble to put catch basins under, get a funnel out of the garage and try to trap some of the pink stuff.

and the 9 bucks an hour thing is for illustration - knowing that some people are retired and love to putter.. not intended to upset the poster or audience

I buy enough antifreeze at Wally World when they first put it out, $1.99 this year to do for 2 treatments. One for extreme winter and one if needed after our week in LA in Feb when we return. First trailer we had, missed the outside shower, line froze in wall between shower and bath sink. After removing a it of cabinetry and a trip to the hardware , replaced about 5 feet of tubing that was wrapped in a loop through a stud? Figuring my labor and that of a friend, could have saved a bit on just doing the winterization right in the first place. Not to think of the lines in the current rv are PEX and getting my hands on the tool to that repair would be another issue. The last I checked into that about $75 for the tool at HD. Bottom line I can get a lot of air and antifreeze for that. Better off spending my time fishing! Than fixing stupid!
