How do you winterize a travel trailer with an air compressor?
Moreover, what PSI Do I need to winterize my camper?
Set your air compressor to 30 psi, with a maximum air pressure of 50 psi, and start blowing air into the water inlet. While your compressor is blowing air into your water lines, walk around your RV and open up water valves, one at a time, to blow the water out from the lines.
Subsequently, question is, should you put antifreeze in your freshwater tank? You need to get RV antifreeze, it is non-toxic and can be used in drinking water systems. We use antifreeze for flushing during winter camping (we use only the black tank in the winter). You will need a funnel to get the antifreeze into your empty fresh water tank through the gravity fill port.

How long does it have to be below freezing for RV pipes to freeze?
You will not have a freezing problem at those temperatures. My personal guideline is no lower than 28 and at least a day high of 45 for an unheated RV. Residual heat will keep the RV plumbing from freezing.
