Since there is talk of the dreaded subject of winterizing on the forum, I`m resurrecting this winterizing thread. Might start the poll over as well.

Self, I like blowing the lines out. Never had an issue.

Well, we've had a very good and long summer here in the PNW and we're hoping to get a few more camping trips in before winter. I DIY winterized last year and will do so again this year. I did however add a back tank flush in the spring so I will need to get some antifreeze into it. My plan is to buy an antifreeze hand pump and pump some antifreeze into the black tank via the flush. Is there any other way to winterize the black tank flush?

Cheers
Enrico

I have not done it yet this year. This will be my first time with the new camper. On my old camper, I pumped the pink stuff in the lines the first couple years I had it. The last many years I owned it, I just used my air compressor and blew the water lines out. Poured the pink stuff in the traps. Never has any problems. Does anyone else blow the lines with air?
