Question Winterizing with compressed air

Checked the files section and tried the search function with no great luck.
Does anyone have a written procedure specific to the View/Navion they would care to share?

Not looking to rekindle the age old debate of pink stuff vs air. Just looking for a compressed air procedure.

I’ve used this method with previous RV’s but each one has its own little quirks.

Thank you

Ed

Search on "blowing out lines" and you get all sorts of hits.
One of my favorites...

I like doing it with air but I do feel it takes a fairly good understanding the where and how the lines are aid in the RV, so that we can do the mental part to feel we got ALL the lines and parts blown clear.
Is this planned as a DIY, and have you looked at the prats online to locate where low spots and valves might be? There can't be a fully correct one-size-fits -all as different years and models with different options are involved.
This is the parts, if you are in the correct date range, it is a super way to see lots of details on your specific RV when you drill down to year, model, length and even the build date or serial number for mid-year changes which may be involved.

Thank you both for these great resources.

My bookmarks continue to grow.

Luckily I have until next February to get my act together.

I usually connect the compressor to the fresh water fill in the exterior water bay in my 2018 N24V. However, the factory water pumps are probably the best way to get the most water out of the system. I will run the water pump and the compressor (it's a small Campbell Hausfeld I use to inflate stuff including bike tires ans such) for maybe 15 minutes each after I've manually opened all the faucets/drains.
One note: Don't forget to replace the water filter (on my unit it's under the galley sink) before you recharge the system in the Spring, for obvious reasons.
If anything else needs clarification, post it to this thread.

Not specific to your RV, but I think the most important advice is to use a regulated air compressor so you don't over pressurize the system.

Also, I do both air and the pink stuff. I'll blow the system out but then use the water pump intake to put about 1/2 gallon of antifreeze into the water pump and bottom lines, just to protect any water left in the system from freezing.
