Hunting, Fishing and now making wine in South Texa

This is my first batch of wine, making 5 gallons of strawberry. I started with a SG of 1.080 and five days later I'm now at 1.020 and just transferred to my secondary and applied airlock,still bubbling nicely. I probably left too much behind in my primary because I have about 4 inches of air space to deal with. Can someone tell me when I should add my fpak, do I stabilize first? When do I de-gas, when do I need to be concerned about topping off? Oh, and I have tap water in my air lock. Is this a bad idea? Thanks in advance for any advice to this rookie wine maker.
