Are you using an RV Blow Out Plug to connect the air line to your water line?

I have a portable air tank. I just put 40 PSI in it to blow out my lines. If I run out of air in the portable tank then I just fill it back up. I have a small TT but, it never takes more then 2 tanks.

Bypass the water heater, or you will need a lot of air.

Yep. Set a pressure and call it good.

I use about 25 PSI.

Not if you drain it first. That is what I do and then use air to blow out the rest.
