Got up at the usual time and had our coffee, Donna headed to work and I went down to my office, I had a bad sleep night as I went to bed with the start of a sore throat and then my sinus's started draining so not much sleep.
I wanted to clarify something about my winterizing procedure as Rick, Rick&Paulettes RV Journal brought up a point I didn't explain in my text. He was worried about putting to much air pressure into the water lines and perhaps breaking one, this is a very real possibility since most shop compressors are capable of a tank pressure well over 100 psi, the easy way to preclude this happening is make sure and have a valve and gauge in line and set it for 40lbs of pressure, this is more than enough and most water lines are rated at 70lbs probably with a little fudge factor. Then before I even attach the air fitting to the city water inlet, I open or remove the two low point drains under the trailer, this provides an outlet for the air pressure so it won't be bottled and build up pressure in the lines, then I attach the air and turn it on at the valve. Since the low point is always open through out the procedure, you still have enough air to go from sink to sink and shower and then the toilet and open them one at a time and drain them of water in the lines, you will be surprised how much is actually in there, when each of them show clear and only dry air comes out you are finished. then I shut the air supply off and cap the low points. You will still need some pink stuff for the P traps and like I said I put a gallon in each tank(Black & Grey) not the fresh water tank, since that is drained empty.I put the gallon in the tanks just so it will lay against the slide valves and not let any water freeze and damage the valves.
Hope this makes it clearer for those that have access to a compressor, If your wondering why I don't put a fitting on the water pump and pump the lines full of antifreeze, That is a good system too, but I feel the air pressure does a better job of getting rid of trapped water and have not had a problem in over a dozen years, the one time I had a problem I did it with the pink stuff in the lines and somehow water was still trapped in the toilet valve and froze so when I charged the water lines the first time I had a mess in the bathroom and a valve to replace, went back to the air system after that.
Anyway I am going to stay inside and try to doctor this throat before it gets worse. Hope all is well with our friend's out there. Be safe, Sam & Donna.
