How is everyone winterizing their San T Flush systems? I blew 30 psi of air through mine, should that not be enough to clear the lines of water?

I just drained the water from the loop under the bathroom sink between the outside connection and the valve.......hopefully its a straight shot down from the valve to the tank.

I have never done anything to the black tank flush. It drains clean water when you unhook the hose. So far so good.

I hope blowing air through it is enough, cause that is what I did also. First year with having this.

Blowing air through it to clear the water should take care of it - has worked on our rig and other RVs that we have owned.

I put some pink AF in a bucket and use a short hose and small sump pump. Not sure if it all drains out of the line into the black tank. I am confident that I push anyresidualwater through. What is left in bucket I use to fill traps

Thanks Guys. Guess I'll find out next spring if blowing air through it worked or not.

yes blowing it out will do it, as this has a vaccum break, so the only need it to clear the line of water.

Hope mine does the same, first time I have had a black tank flush and I didn't even think about having to drain the water from the tank flush line, but like you said water always seemed to run out after unhooking the hose. Guess I'll find out come spring.

The San-T Flush plumbingruns on top of your fabric belly liner, forming a low point for liquid to collect. The factory installed San-T Flush system in our 2010 Cruiser is connected to a threaded drain connection on the black water tank. So, liquid will settle in the hose that runs from your vacuum breaker / check valve to thedrain of your tank. Its location also leads to nozzle clogging, another pain to repair.
If you read the instructions for the installation of an after market San-T-Flush you will find out that it is supposed to be installed toward to top of the tank NOT at a low point.

I blew mine out with 30 psi air then used a spare pump to pump in some of the pink stuff. Just takes a few min's and ensures no problems next spring. One hard freeze with a little water left in there and ?? who knows.
