I think on your trailer they are under the rear bunk just above where those two drain lines come out the bottom of your trailer. They are a T handle on top of an elbow fitting. Just grab the T and pull up and then push it back in. It's about 1/2 inch of travel.

And make sure you take the plug out of your hot water heater too so it can fully drain. You can put it back in loosely afterwards to keep bugs and critters out if you wish.

As you will see in this poll most JOF members find winterizing so easy they do it themselves. Also basic winterizing instructions and discussion:

Like everyone said, do a little research and buy a couple gallons of RV anti-freeze... it's a piece of cake. Did mine the first time in about an hour last year.

What kind of setup do y'all use to blow out the lines?

I'm about to take possession of my first TT, a 2010 28BHS. I've been reading all the various posts about Antifreeze vs compressed air. My question is about what setup you use for blowing out the lines. If I understand correctly, I don't want to use a traditional air compressor because of the oil right?

Some of the portable compressors that I've been looking at don't look like you can operate at a set PSI. (On that note, what PSI should I be working with?) What compressors are you guys using?

Any other tips if I go this route? Thanks from a newbie!

I use a small Porter Cable oil less compressor. I can set the line pressure (I usually go around 40 PSI) and I use a threaded QC on the city water inlet AND the black tank flush. I have one of those cheap white plastic fittings that I used exactly once; I recommend u don't even bother with it.

One of the Youtube vids on the subject, the guy uses a high pressure/high volume 12V tankless compressor (a Viair IIRC).

‘tis unfortunate that the manufacturer as well as the dealer are less than forthcoming about winterization. Makes one ponder another manufacturer and dealer when ‘tis time to upgrade. I saw nothing useful in the manual. The trailer tank and lines were not labeled.

I mistakenly thought that two of the aft low-point drains were inline valves, whereas contributors to this forum taught me that two of my aft low-point drains were push-pull petcocks. One would think that the manufacturer and the dealer would have pointed this out.

A little online research as well as helpful contributors to this forum have sufficiently educated me as to effective winterization techniques.

Attached are a hot water tank photo as well as a schematic that I found enlightening.

I like to pour some antifreeze down the drains as well so that the traps have antifreeze in them rather than water.
