I know of none in this area. Since we will have above freezing temps for the next few days, I'd wash it with the hose in the driveway. Be sure to heavily flush the chassis & wheel wells.

There is a Blue Beacon in Kirkwood off I81 at Loves, just south of Binghamton.

There is a truck stop on W Henrietta Rd S of Lehigh Station behind the Day's Inn. I would give them a call. If they do not do it they might know who does. Then there Camping World in Churchville or Johnson RV in Webster:

New Creek Business Inc
4925 W Henrietta Rd, Henrietta, NY (585) 334-7510

The ice in the driveway didn't melt today, it is looking like Monday will be a busy day, I want to wash and then rewinterize, will make up the air line you suggested.

This is the hose adapter that I made. It's about 24" long. Using compressed air, 40 psi max, will push almost all of the water out. I follow it up with about 6 gallons of RV antifreeze to be sure all of the residual water is pushed down the drain and the traps and tanks have sufficient amounts in them. Its double insurance, but after having a 'clear' line freeze years ago, its worth the effort this far north. The winterizing inlet usually draws the antifreeze into the plumbing lines by running the water pump, but you probably already know the process.

I'm going to have to learn how to run the washer/drier to make sure I use both hot and cold water to get antifreeze into both circuits.
