If you're set up for it, it's a breeze. We camp mostly in winter, so I get to blow mine out several times a year as I said earlier. I use a small pancake type compressor and set the regulator at 40 psi, hook it on and just go about opening valves and let the water blow out... drain the water heater... pour a little antifreeze in the traps and toilet, and it's done.
I started with a smaller unit like you have about 6 years ago. It's a learning process, but the internet is a great source. Ask questions and don't worry about appearing to be a beginner. There are lots of very good folks that are very helpful and welcome beginner questions... because we all started somewhere. I look at this site, IRV2, FROG (Forest River owners group), and several other sites. Do be careful as there is misinformation out there. Read several opinions and answers from several places... and go from there.
