2004Re: WINTER STORAGE
- Oct 1, 2000-Another method (and RV dealers use this one because it would be too
time consuming and costly to antifreeze a couple of hundred rigs on
their lot) is to purchase a blow plug. It looks like a tire stem
attached to a screw in plug that you attach to your city water
connection. Then apply air from an air compressor. Now hopefully
you have low-point drain lines and valves, because you will never
blow everything out through the faucets and water will still sit in
the low points. I speak from experience on this one - about $200 to
replace frozen lines that did not get completely drained.
