I do my own with compressed air and only use the pink antifreeze for the sink traps. My wife swears she can taste anti-freeze for several trips in the spring if I use it in the fresh water side. I think she's crazy, but it's no big deal to do the compressed air system so I don't mind.

Oil from Compressor Concern?

Are any of you guys that use the compressed air method concerned about the oil particulates that are present in compressed air, or is everyone running a separator?

I see they have little inline filters for $2.50 at Harbor Freight. I think I'll put one in as a precaution, but was just curious if anyone else is doing this and not mentioning it or just not worrying about it.

Could you tell me why I would keep the stabilizers up and if I don't have a wind issue is it still wise to cover the top? Why?

Are you writing, that if I don't have the dealer winterize, I'll void any freezing issues. As long as I remember to winterize the sani-con, and black tank flush, I think I'll be ok. Thoughts?

I just need clarification on a couple points if you don't mind me jumping in. When winter camping after you have winterized your camper you can still put water from a jug down the sinks or toilet? Do you put more antifreeze down the tanks? is it just the water lines you worry about? not the sewage tank lines?
