I'm using a 3.5 gallon pancake compressor mostly (well- solely) because it's what I bought for filling my truck's tires.

What pressure does your new oilless reach? How are folks limiting the pressure to 50 or so psi?

I think it reaches 100 psi and it has a build in regulator to set the psi @ whatever you need it to be!

Go Hokies! You'll need a compressor delivering a steady 25-40lbs per sq inch of volume to effectively blow the water from your lines. anything less will take a lot of time and get frustrating. If you don't own a compressor with a storage tank, then just use RV anti freeze and pull it thru your lines and call it a day.

Winterizing

This is our first winter with our Rockwood Roo. 2013 - 23RS.
I did the antifreeze method and did get some in the FW Tank, hopefully there is no aftertaste in the spring.
The Roo will remain plugged in through the winter so we're leaving the batteries on the tongue.

I was wondering if anyone has thoughts on raising the tires off of the ground. the trailer will be parked in my driveway, but we have heard that the tires can get flat spots.

oilless-schmoiless. I use my old crappy 2hp barrel-tank compressor. I regulate it down to 30 or so PSI. You can put a filter on it if you insist, but I just hook up and go.
