Sundawg I would recommend a larger air compressor for blowing it out. What you could do is go to a local gas station and bring your own clip on air chuck.

Word of advice. Use your water pressure reducer and place on rv. then plug the RV blow out to that. This way you can put the air compressor as high as you want and dont have to worry about blowing up your lines. RV water lines are only rated at about 45 PSI. I highly recommend getting a water line pressure reducer.

Not sure a water regulator would work to regulate air.
No worries though as the pancake compressors come with regulators that can dial down the 140psi air to as low as 10 psi. I used mine to paint model aircraft with a badger airbrush.

That is what the dealership I bought from does. That's what he recommended I didn't even ask. But yes my air tank has a regulator on it too.
