Good enough air compressor for winterizing?

Hi All!
I'm looking to get an air compressor to blow out my lines to winterized my Micro Lite 18FBR. I don't know diddly about air compressors, though. Found this on amazon. Is it good enough?

Rockworth RW1504ST 4-Gallon Factory Reconditioned Portable Electric Air Compressor - Amazon.com

Thanks for any guidance!
B.

Too big for just blowing out the lines, Harbor Freight has a 3 gal much cheaper and will more than do the job.

That will work very well.

I bought this 3 years ago I think it would do as well it was on sale for 39.99 when I got it.

Get the biggest you can afford. Everyman needs a big air compressor for tires, air tools, filling pool toys.etc.......

I have the Craftsman version of this from Home Depot for $100. Does the winterizing job and tops up my tires quite nicely.

If you want it for blowing out the lines, I would get an oil-less.
(as all the above are)

I use a small one that can run from the cigarette outlet or 110 v. It is just enough for basketballs, bicycle tires & a flat on your TV or TT. I have had both & it is handy to get you back on the road fast. Black & Decker makes mine but there are others equally good. I don't have to worry about too much pressure for the water lines either, but I always leave one faucet open when it is running.
