Blow out hose

Sometime ago, I thought I saw some plans on making a water line blow hose adapter for hookup to an air compressor. This would be used for blowing out the water lines when winterizing. I did a search but cannot find those plans. Does anyone have the plans? I have used the plastic blow out plug. But this requires too many trips in and out of the motorhome.
Thanks ...............

Regulate the pressure +1. Your air compressor should have a valve and a guage, 25psi max.

All the pressure regulators that are in line are 40to 50 psi. I just use a inline press. regulator.

I use one of these. You need to buy the quick connect for your air hose.

I made one from stuff I purchased from Lowe's/Home Depot. I keep the pressure regulated at the compressor to 25-28. Easy, works perfectly, and I like to make-fix stuff anyway.

Get a quick connect of the proper polarity, a hose adapter of the proper polarity, and an adapter to go between them. Your adapter will look different than mine (I have quick connects on my hoses with different connectors so I cannot connect the dirty hose to the clean water connection) but the concept is the same.
