Draining Air Tanks

May be a dumb question , but here goes:
When you drain the front and rear air tanks of accumulated water I "assume" you do this when the tanks are empty of air?

No, do it when full. If the "drains" on your Scepter are like ours, they are just valves attached to the tanks that then run quite a ways away from the tanks. Need the air pressure to blow the water through the lines.
However, you will probably not have any water in there yet. If any comes out of the "drains", you need to replace your air dryer cartridge.
It is noisy, so be prepared.

Negative - do it at full air pressure. There should be 3 pull cords or valves (hidden up front - maybe wheel well) somewhere. Pulling those will release air and any accumulated water. One cord each for the primary, secondary, and charge/feed tanks. Just pull until there is no water spitting out. You are likely to not even have any moisture come out. So a 10-15second bleed or so is all that is needed. Usually an every 6month task. Hardest part is remembering to do it. After 2 years your dryer cartridge if so equipped is probably due for a change - especially if you spitted water.
