My 60 gallon 7hp US General from Haror Freight, sits in an unheated part
of the shop, but is always on. (wife can air her own flat tires). I am
in the process of putting an automatic unloader on it, but it won't do
much good in the winter, as the moisture will be frozen.
Another trick, if it is in a heated area, is to just let the bleader
valve leak, (just a liiiittle bit). This keeps all the moisture out of
the tank.
