Newbies ready to winterized.

All my wife and I purchased a x17z a little over a month ago. We have taken it out twice and now I think we will put it away for the winter. I have been thinking about just going to camping world letting them do it and me watch so I won't have to pay again. We have friends that tell us it's super easy just using compressed air. Any thoughts? Also if you use compressed air is there anything you have to do to the black tanks we have already dumped and cleaned it and it has a little water with the chemicals already in. Thanks for the advice!

can you explain why they do not want us to drain the water heater right of the bat ? My understanding is that I soon as you have turned off the inlet and outlet valve on the heater it doesn't matter if you drain right away or not ...

I don't see where it makes any difference when you drain it once it is isolated. I usually drain mine last once I'm done inside the trailer with the antifreeze, but there is no reason you couldn't let it drain while you are doing the rest of the winterizing.

Make sure the water heater is turned off.. then it is just part of the water system..

while the air hose is attached make sure you flush the toilet and hold the valve open for all the water to be blown out of that line..

just before the water pump is often a small filter make sure you take the cup off and empty it. don't forget any external showers..
