With those accumulator tanks ..... do you have to worry about them freezing .... or do they drain?

Maybe it doesn't freeze in Longview ....

Don't know if you have to worry about it but I don't. I've had one for 10 years and it's never frozen and I'm certainly in the freeze zone.

The way I understand it, air pressure on the dry side of the tanks rubber bladder completely empties the tank, or pretty close to it, when there is no water pressure in the system. As the water pump applies greater water pressure the rubber bladder in the tank backs off allowing water in the tank.

I do use RV antifreeze which gets blown out right after I put it in.

It is just a line going into a tank with a bladder. It drains when you drain your lines but I always use the anti-freeze as the trailer is outside. Yes, it does freeze in Longview, at times.
