Winterizing, etc.

The camping season is winding down here in Wisconsin. After one more weekend trip coming up this weekend, it'll be time to winterize. This is our first time winterizing a TT, so we're looking for a comprehensive list on what to do when blowing out the lines, etc., since we've decided to go this route instead of antifreeze. Does anyone have a list they can share? Thanks in advance.

We're in Wisconsin, too. No more trips for us, though so planning to winterize this weekend. I've got a list that I adapted for the Shamrock but I'm using antifreeze.

The video in the FAQ section explains how to do it with compressed air.

on your last trip of the season.

Thanks Triguy. We're going to Point Beach SP this weekend. Our first time there. Looking forward to seeing what that park has to offer. Just got back yesterday from 11 days at High Cliff SP. Sad that it is almost over for the yeR. Gonna be a long 6 months.

The video actually tells how to winterize both ways--
compressed air and/or using your water pump to pump RV antifreeze
throughout your system.
