thanks for that mojo---please clarify for this newbie if you would.
1. can i "drain the water" just by by running the 12volt pump and empty the fresh water tank by running the shower, kitchen sink faucet and vanity faucet until no more water comes out.
2. then dump the grey and black water tanks.
3. then hookup the portable compressor and blow any residual water out the lines OR should i locate some fresh water tank plug under the rig and drain it manually?
4. and can i "empty" the hot water tank just by running the faucets on "hot" setting at the lowest faucet and then blow out any residual water with the air compressor, or do i need to remove the nylon plug on the water heater and manually drain each trip i make?
(i'm trying to avoid removing and replacing drain plugs every few weeks if possible)
thanks for the info on this---i'm looking for the quick and dirty method just to go from north (freezing area) to south and back and forth as quickly as possible on short notice.
