It may be a little late to reply, but do not forget to drain the hot water tank.

I thought I had since this was the second winter for me (much colder than 2017) and I followed the same steps to use an air compressor to blow the lines out.

I went to check the camper a few weeks ago and found water in the front storage compartment and the panel between the water heater and the compartment was wet.

I took the access panel to the water heater off and found traces of water, but could not see any split lines.

I took the camper to the dealer to have the system pressure check. They called a confirmed my fear. the water heater was cracked.

Looking through the owners manual again, I found that there is a procedure to drain the water heater 2 pages before the winterizing section. I did not know You had to pull the anode out of the water heater to drain it.

Lesson learned - make sure you read all the manual.
