Disinfecting fresh water tank

Anyone got a trick for adding bleach to the on board fresh water tank on their Georgetown for disinfecting?

One universal solution.
Add about 5 gals of water to tank.
Disconnect and drain fill hose.
Use a small pitcher or funnel and pour bleach into hose.
reconnect hose to water supply and fill tank.

Get a 5 gallon bucket. Put in the amount of bleach you want, fill the rest with water and suck it all into the system using the winterizing connection. If that isn't enough water for you add more to the bucket as it is being drained. Wait a while and leave it in the lines and then flush it all out from the fresh water tank.
