for installing tubing use a pot of warm/hot water to dip ends in it than push hose on barb.

ever see fluid run upwards unless its pumped!

i drain mine by placing case between 2 chairs with MB bottom side facing ceiling and pull lowest connection into 5gal plastic pail,

If you are going that far it might just be easier during drain to mount a fill/drain port or something upside down in the bottom of the case(with a valve in the line between the port and the T you have it connected to) and then just sit the case upright over a bucket in the kitchen sink. Would save you from flipping a heavy case around.

thats what I did. Added this line as a drain and also as a fill port. I didnt use the 7/16" hose that is in the rest of the loop, I bought 1/2" thin walled tubimg from the hardware store. I can easly pull the hose through the rubber gormet and drain the system in a bucket. In theory it sounds good, but I have yet to test it!!!

Travel / Ship by land or air?

if by air, you better empty system for plane storge compartments fall below freezing point while in flight

Wrong - all baggage bays onboard aircraft are Class C or E, with air management. That goes for all cargo aircraft too, for the likes of FedEx and UPS.

Anyway. I would leak check, then empty the loop before shipping, since you never know how the carrier will stow the box in the cargo hold: the case could be upside down - and I don't trust the cap lid of the Micro-res.

Once received, it's only a matter of filling and bleeding the air. With proper instructions, it's rather easy to do.

THE AIR CARGO ENVIRONMENT HAZARDS
In The Aircraft
Acceleration/Deceleration-Fore-and-aft pressures are exerted on cargo during takeoff and landing. Compression forces are exerted during rough landings.
Turbulence-Rough or "bumpy" flight conditions subject cargo to rapid alternating vertical movements, imposing heavier pressure one moment, and almost weightless conditions the next.
Altitude-As altitude increases, atmospheric pressure decreases, subjecting liquid cargo to leakage hazards and pressurized cargo to increased internal pressure.
Temperature- Aircraft cargo compartment temperatures normally range between 30F and 70F (-1C and 21C). However, cargo aboard an aircraft parked in freezing or very hot weather will be subjected to unusual cold or heat conditions.
Cargo Compartments - The main cargo compartments of air freighters are normally well equipped for adequate stowage. Passenger aircraft belly compartments, however, are often loaded with limited cargo restraint equipment permit-ting the possibility of movement during flight and inviting damage from adjacent cargo.

Those are totally normal conditions. Nothing to be afraid of to ship a rig. Like I said, don't fill it up 'cause you don't know which way the load handlers will stow it.
