Attaching Compressor to Hurricane 29M to Blow Out Lines

Was hoping to attach my compressor to the city water port to blow out the system, but realized the port is larger then I was expecting and no threading for an adapter.

I could connect to the pump but was hopping for an outside option.

For those of you that blow out your lines, how do you make the connection?

Sounds like you're trying to connect to the Water Tank Fill Inlet.
City water hookup is on the Drivers Side.

That is actually what I purchased thinking it would fit the city water inlet, but no go. The port is much bigger.

Yeah I think revjeffrey is correct: You are trying to hook to the water fill and not the city water inlet. The city water inlet has a standard hose connection (that the fitting you purchased can hook to).

You are right! Don’t know what I was thinking.

I'm thinking about ordering one for myself. Living near Galveston Texas, a light freeze (32-30 for a day) shouldn't be a problem. Occasionally we will get colder for longer so then freeze protection will come into effect.

Another reason I like the Air Adapter method. Set to 45 psi. Then do the dish soap bubble test on all of the water fittings and connections. Could save you a lot of Grief later on.
Perfect for You or anyone. I personally do both Air & Antifreeze or Vodka.
