Blowing out lines

I have recently purchased a 2013 Grey Wolf 29BH. I plan on blowing out the lines when I leave my hunting camp on sundays. Can someone provide a picture on how the valves should look when I am blowing out the lines?
Thanks

when blowing out the lines you should leave things like normal so that they will be flushed. alternate closing hot and cold at your sinks and shower (and toilet) the only time you should bypass your hot water heater is when you are filling the lines with anti-freeze but be shure its empty first. Also put some anti-freeze down your drains to get the water out and replaced with anti-freeze. This is the way I do it blowing out the lines with air.

As mentioned by davidjb, leave the valves alone when blowing out the lines. If you are ready to winterize, see my comments below.

Valve on cold water inlet pipe should be closed or perpendicular to the hose.
Valve in between should be open or inline with the hose
Valve on hot water outlet should be closed or perpendicular to the hose.

Here's a photo of my Apex 151RBX in bypass mode

At what p.s.i. do you use for blowing out lines? I have heard several different values and want to be sure.

30 PSI will get the job done. Don't go with too much pressure or bad things can happen.

30 or 40 psi, always have a sink open before you start compressor. Open second valve then shut first valve and repeat until you get them all. I never shut the valves unless the compressor is off. maybe best to start with shower because water can spray around.

Don't forget even though you blow out the water lines, you'll still need to put anti-freeze in the "P" traps at all sink drains.

if your not going to use hot water at your camp you can bypass the hot water heater just make sure you empty it. I always take the drain plug out and put it in my silverware drawer. My new camper has an anode and I just put it in a baggie.
