Are you talking about the low point drains? There is a fitting you can buy that allows you to blow compressed air through the water hose hookup. I’ll let someone who has done it, explain better.

And also while you are at it.. I ruined a pump one time by not turning it on whilst draining out.
That makes sure there is NO water left to break the sides of the pump.

Any RV store will have that water/air connector and instructions.
Good luck
Chuck

Please clarify what drains, low point drains, fresh water tank drain, or the "bottom of the sink" drains that empties the sink and shower.

For the low point h & c lines remove cap or turn valve. Open all hot and cold faucets including out side shower and kitchen if equipped and wait for it to drain.

Fresh water tank, just open and let drain.

If your talking about the sink/shower drain just pour antifreeze into the drain.

I have used one of these in the past https://www.homedepot.com/p/Camco-RV...6153/206813809 just make sure you DON"T use more air pressure than water system is rated for. I think I was using 50 psi when I did it. Worked great. Hope this helps.

It's the sink and shower drains that still have water. Everything has been drained, including the hot/cold low points.

Then a gallon of "the pink stuff" should due. Most of those traps hold less than 2 cups. Just pour directly in the drains and don't forget to cover the "flap" in the toilet so it doesn't dry out.

This is what I do. Grab 2 gallons of the pink stuff at the RV store. I have a hose on my water pump that will suck the pink stuff out of the bottle and run it through all the water lines. Just open all the sink valves till you get the pink then stop. I have some valves that isolate the water heater so I just drain the water heater and leave the anode rod in the storage compartment in a bag. Post it note inside RV to remind you to put it back in later LOL Pour some in all the drains. Don't forget the shower. Remember the pink stuff has to be for drinking water. So make sure you get the right stuff. At the end of the winter I fill up the fresh water tank and turn on the pump to flush out the pink stuff. I try to put it back in the bottle as much as I can so I can use it next year.

Lines still have water after blowing out

Hey all. I have a 2020 Springdale 240BHWE model. I was winterizing yesterday by using the compressed air method. I first drained the water tanks fresh and hot, emptied out the low point drains, then hooked up air to 40 psi. I could never keep the psi up and it didn't seem to work at all. Well, then I did the bypass at the tank and then the pressure came up to about 28 (kept charge on compressor at 40 though). I did this for about an hour opening and closing each valve or faucet, etc. and still, water was spurting out and or a fine spray of water was still seen. Plus I also heard gurgling sounds coming from the water tank it seemed. But when I removed the plug again, nothing came out. So I did it again and that sound finally stopped but I never got the faucets to stop having this fine mist of water come out. What am I missing? Shouldn't they be dry after about 20 mins or so?

Ruff Rider, we will have a difference of opinion on your "At the end of the winter I fill up the fresh water tank and turn on the pump to flush out the pink stuff. I try to put it back in the bottle as much as I can so I can use it next year" statement. What you are saving is badly diluted and should not be saved. Saving one gallon ($4.00) of diluted anti-freeze is a sure fire route to the repair tech the following year. Please spare no cost (price is no object) and part with the 8 or 9 bucks every year.
