Blow out or RV Antifreeze Poll

Who blows out lines with air and who fills lines with rv antifreeze?
What's your reason why?

Always anti-freeze. Too many low spots, especially fittings. Rather spend $10.00 than take a chance.

Blowout: Quick, easy, nothing to 'undo' for camping, and cheap.

Antifreeze because it's easy and I have never had a problem with freeze damage to plumbing so I know it works.

I blow out and then add antifreeze to dilute low spots and blow out again. Does not take much extra time as hauling the air compressor out back.

I blow it out then add a little antifreze to the "P" traps. Drain the water heater, too.
