I am thinking of blowing all lines putting AF in the drains and tanks and leaving all the faucets open but not putting AF in the lines, does anyone do this?
It's what I do every year.Worked well until I forgot to blow out the water pump. New pump fixed that problem.

Ouch, I would rather spend a lot more time making sure all lines, pump, HWH are totally free of water and leave all faucets open, AFbin drains, toilet, and tanks. We don't drink the H2O at campsites but I double filter the water coming into the RV just to keep my RV clean, I guess we put water in our mouths when we brush our teeth so would rather have a clean system then not. Mine is brand new used it once when we picked it up so the more I stay on top of it the more I can assure a very clean system, will be sanitizing the lines etc next week just to get it all ready for camping between May and November

Finally finished hooking up the 3 different cable feeds for the Tailgater to the satellite box. Now I can plug in either the pinbox, ladder mount or tripod feeds without having to plug or unplug any cable or string wire on the ground for any of them except the tripod.

Finally got to finish my electric fireplace install . Screws are covered with buttons and varnish is on. Project grew into a phone charging station when I moved an outlet to get power for fireplace.

Adjusted the brakes, de-winterized, repainted the Equal-i-zer brackets and bars.
We'll finish loading her up this evening before leaving tomorrow for a week at Natchez Trace state park.

Installed two LED dimmers for the awning lights.

Installed awning hold down poles on our slide out awning. 2nd set of OC brackets was installed a few days ago.

They are Sherlock Painting poles.
Looking forward to trying them out

Might swap my main conduit poles too out if I like them.

How about blowing it out, then antifreeze, then blow it again? That way you know the water is rinsed out but the antifreeze won't be there in the lines.
