Air or the pink Stuff?

OK. I'm going to attempt my first winterization in a week or two but want to know pros and cons regarding whether to use air to blow it out everywhere (I can do) or the pink stuff in system (I can also do). RV is a 40 ft Cedar Creek with washer/Dryer. Comments suggestions...and especially any "gotchas"! Thanks.

We have done both on all the campers we have owned since 1997 with not one issue ever...

Both here, too. Wasn't there a poll on the forum on this topic last week?

Air for me. Our dealer winterized it for us the first year with pink, but I had always used air on our prior TT so I went back to that.

That said, we live in a fairly tempurate area and do not experience the long hard freezes like many areas. Also, we do not have the ice maker or washer & dryer.

Both here as well....don't forget to add some pink stuff in your drain p-traps as well as have some in your toilet bowl to help keep that seal from drying out and getting brittle....being in SC you can probably get away with just blowing out your lines, but the pink stuff is so cheap why would you risk it in case you get a real harsh cold spell...takes minutes and it's cheap insurance...better to do it now, then find out you will get a real cold snap and have to go out and do it then.

Even though you blow it out you still got to use some pink stuff (p-traps/tanks).
