Winterising an Itasca Solei 38R

We have a 2014 Itasca 38R, which doesnít have a hot water tank bypass, apparently that was an option you had to choose when buying new, we didnít buy it new. Anyway I drained the tanks and blew air through the lines, but Iím not convinced all the water is out and I can see about 1/4Ē in the hot water tank, and still hear gurgling from two taps. Manual says not to go any higher than 30psi, I tried shutting taps to try and focus on the gurgly ones, but they still gurgle, also how do I know the water pump is empty? Any info appreciated. Just donít want any surprises in the spring. Thanks.

Been using Air on mine the last 18 years- I use 55 lbs-- seems to clear out all of the lines doing 1 faucet at a time- including the WH and Toilet.
On my WH -I remove the Element and leave it out--open hole each winter. Pink Stuff in the drains and Done- Takes me about an hour.
Oh! Don't forget to remove the Water Filter under the Kit sink if you have one.

I can't imagine there is no bypass capability somewhere in that MH. If not in the area of the city water hookup, then look inside the coach in the area where the water heater is located. There should be valving on the tubing that supplies water to the water heater to bypass it for winterizing the water system. Winterizing is not an "option".
