Winterizing

What pressure should I set my compressor to when blowing out the lines?

You'll probably get a wide range of responses for this. Most people say somewhere between 20 and 50 PSI.

Split the difference and go with 35.5

The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything, including psi for water line blowout is 42.

0-psi. I don't use air and just let the Antifreeze push the water out.

Dang... I had really believed it to be 41.6 PSI.
No wonder there are no pots of gold at the end of my rainbows!

Seriously, most all commercial R/V water pressure regulators are in the range of 40 to 55 psi. Air is no different. Set your regulator accordingly.

Don't see anything in the above posts that should freak anybody out. They are all viable, useful answers. It's not like it's rocket science.........
