Thanks for the responses to my thread guys. I was able to make an adapter that worked great to blow out the lines. My compressor isn't great, so I ended up using around 25psi, but it seemed to do the trick. I filled the drains and toilet with AF and called it a day.

Next question... I'm not planning on covering it, and it does snow around here. Not a lot but we'll probably see 3 - 4 snowfalls throughout winter that will be about 3 - 8" in depth. I'm assuming I should keep the snow cleared from the roof? Especially when it starts to melt?

Any advice on this?

Next spring we'll see a few posts here about broken lines from those the blew out the lines but didn't get all the water out. Air can easily be forced through the low points without removing the water, then it drains back and freezes.
Never broken a line yet but then I use antifreeze or (usually) keep heat in the rig all winter since we use it every month or so.

That is my thought with the antifreeze. You never know what nook and cranny that air will push the water to. I have been closing summer cottages for years and I never have a problem. People that blow out the lines seem to replace a faucet or a line every once and a while. Oh hey sorry ryguy for high jacking your post.
