paulk,

welcome to the forum!

in the spring i hook up to the city water connection and just flush everything out twice.

large volume of water does the trick!

as for the fresh tank, i fill it with water and a cup of bleach. let stand for a day and dump/refill.

remove them, clean them, top them up if needed, and store in the basement.

i give them a charge about once a month with an automotive charger.

they are not coming out just yet, depending on weather, i might use the trailer for base camp deer hunting!

i will use it dry, not needing to rewinterize when i am done with it for the year. sometime in late november i hope!

paul,

that "could" work, i would be a little concerned with any water droplets left in the valve bodies.

even a few droplets left in the faucets or toilet valve could destroy them.

unless you really put the air to it for an extended amount of time i'd worry.

with the little three way valve installed, winterizing with antifreeze is really a 3 beer or 10 min. job! tops!

I removed my three way valve this summer after discovering that is was leaking air into the pump when the pump kicked on. It workes great for winterizing though. If I hadn't had the clear tubing I would have never known. Has anyone else had this problem?

If a had a few Millers the problem would probably work itself out.
