Thanks for the vid.
It always helps to see things being done to help stop a forgotten step.
As an alternative to bleach I picked up (at the RV shops recommendation)

The Gallon was $19 but I think you get 4 applications out of the quantity
I also got a new anode rod but used the original for Two seasonsClick image for larger version

I have been told this rod is still serviceable but considering the size of the chunks I drained out of the tank last fall,I decided to swap it out
Thanks again

Looks fine... should be good for another season or two. But really, I cant imagine the fun you will have when that puppy breaks off inside of the hw heater. It will make getting the lime out of my corona look easy...

I used city water to flush the antifreeze from my lines before I sanitized the fresh tank and ran that water through the lines over night.



I have to thank the good folks here with helping me out. The anode rod did not seat all the way in and I thought it was supposed to. I posted a question about it on the plumbing forum here and had answers in no time. So I was able to sanitize the hot water heater and had no leaks.



Now I can't wait to get more nights on the road.



great video, thanks! What is your YouTube channel?
