When and if I remember.:confused: So not that often, need to make a note to do that tomorrow!
I should do, like you. but I usually drain it at least once a week.;)
man thats horrible sonny
Darn, forgot the note, maybe tomorrow after church!
i crack mine open long enough for it to blow water out, about once every 2 weeks
The more often, the better, but you really need to let the air in the tank cool down to ambient temperature, so as much water as possible can condense out of the air.
