Hoping to hold off on fully winterizing 'til after Thanksgiving weekend...we'll be camping then.

DID finally get a pizza stone for the oven and a small personal sized humidifier for Sneak. His sinuses do NOT like dry heat in the winter.

BTW, what's the recommended PSI if we choose to simply blow out the lines this year instead of pumping pink?
40 PSI is the pressure I use to blow out the water lines

X5. Between 30 and 40 PSI depending upon where the needle stops when setting the pressure.

Another option is this. Don't have to worry about the compressor setting and you can use when you are at camp grounds and at home. I know at home I would probably be pushing the limits with pressure rating...

I opened up the rig and started re supplying for our next long weekend trip in a couple weeks. Also turned the mattress around. I'm always ready to load up and hit the road!

Wow, I got my question answered...in spades!

thanks y'all! Only down to 31* tonight, so with the low point drains opened up, on shore power with heaters running we should be fine. I'll discuss blowing everything out with Sneak this evening.

I am just curious, I have seen others post same thing. If you are blowing out the lines, why and where are you putting pink stuff in?
