Winterization - do you blow out or do you fill with antifreeze

Winterization - do you blow out or do you fill with antifreeze?

So, which do you do? Why?

I have a Roo 183 and am inclined to blow out the lines, but I suppose this is the least effective method?

Thanks!

Blowing out the lines is very effective. Then adding a cup of pink in each trap does it. I do both. I blow out the lines AND add the pink stuff. Why? I don't know. Just an overkill I guess.

Make sure the compressor doesn't have oil in the lines or you'll put oil into your system.

That makes two of us. I usually start with just blowing out the lines and adding a little to the traps. That way just in case I can get one last trip in, I am not wasting too much of the pink stuff. If we get out again, I blow the lines out before departing the campgrounds and add to the traps. Once I know that we are done for the season, the pink stuff goes in the lines as well.
