I have not seen them at Walmart.

You can get all the parts at Home Depot, Menards like stores, to make one. The individual parts to make it, definitely cost more than to buy it already made. But I have a shutoff valve which the factory made ones do not.

I am planning on doing both (air blowout and antifreeze) this year. My previous TT (R-Vision Trail Lite) had a connection for an air compressor line. My White Hawk does not seem to have it. How do I do an air blowout on a White Hawk?

You can buy an inexpensive adapter at most RV dealers or Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Camco-36143-Br...o+blowout+plug They also make a cheap plastic one. I have both and they both work the same.

I have the cheap plastic one and I hate it. I'm going to get the quick connect one this season. That way I can just set the pressure on my compressor, hook up the hose and move around the trailer opening all my valves to get all the water out instead of having to hold the air hose on and have DW flipping faucets...

Redenbacher; it is fairly easy to do. Just screw on the adaptor shown in the pictures to the city water connection. Make sure the pressure regulator is set to a low pressure. Then connect your air compressor hose to it. Wala, you are pushing air through your water pipes.

I used to use antifreeze, now I blow out the lines and fill the traps with anti freeze. Mind you I no longer have a fresh water tank nor a pump in my trailer so filling the lines with antifreeze is difficult.
I also use that $5 fitting from Camco to screw into the city water connection.

Do you guys pour antifreeze into your fresh water tank? Or just pull through the winterizing hose on your pump?

I am curious about this also. Anybody have an idea?
The line was a lot easier to access on my old camper and I would just unhook and drain it. It is in quite a tight spot on the 19H.

Just blew out my water lines and it was a breeze. I will be using anti freeze as well but will wait till after I get my new sink installed before I do the final winterizing. I bought my brass blow out plug from Amazon and I think it was around $5 with shipping.
