Many ideas on winterizing. I don't know if this applies to all water heaters, but I have heard that the anti-freeze is not good to use in a water heater that has the electric heating element besides the propane.

I think Handn is right on with his procedure. Last year, we hired an RV professional to add a (second) battery to our Safari. He mentioned that he winterized RV's for several of the large local dealers. I ask how he did it and his procedure was precisely like the one Handn described above. He said he had done it hundreds of times and never had a problem. Keep in mind that we are in Oregon, not Maine and have milder winters. The tip about the faucet filter is also excellent. I removed ours last winter. The AS manual recommends it as a precaution. Good luck. jc

I bought a compressor similar to CanoeStream's, just a different brand. It works great for winterizing. As far as small compressors that might work for tires and winterizing, you might want to check the Viair website. They have a number of portable compressors. Theirs will clamp on to the battery for power and have a long enough compressor hose to reach the trailer tires and the vehicle tires. I looked at a number of portable compressors (Slime, etc) before buying theirs. jc
