Has there been a discussion concerning winterizing water lines in a mobile home?

I am particularly interested in (1) air compressors, (2) how to attach an air compressor, and (3) why do mobile homes not have a water drain cock?

Hi alex

Help me. What is the connection between water lines and air compressors?

Thank you.

Aside from the roof leak, soft floors, rats, mice and bursted plumbing ........ how do you like it?

Harry,

I want to use my air compressor to blow out the water lines, so that during the Ohio winter the water lines/pipes won't freeze and break. I'll be out of state for 7-8 months.

You can do a search for winterizing. I know it has been discussed in the past. There is also a section in Mark's book that deals with it. The book is in the "Books & Parts" section of the site. Greg
"If I can't fix it, I can screw it up so bad no one else can either."
