I used pretty much the same procedure but used a lot more bleach, not knowing what the previous owner had or hadn't done to the water system. Just make sure you use unscented bleach, and rinse thoroughly.

This got me to thinking, I put about a cup of clorox in my curbside trash can to keep the smell down. Would it cause any harm to the toilet or black water tank if I did the same?

It will cause a ton of harm to any septic system you dump your tank into (kills the good bacteria that septic systems rely on).

If you already have water in the fresh water tank, leave it there and use the proper amount of bleach for a full tank and then fill it up. I remove my filter after I release the pressure on the lines by shutting off the pump and then open up a tap.. Run the bleached water through the water lines via your pump until you can smell the bleach in the water coming out of the taps, both hot and cold. Remember your outside shower. You can also just use the city water connection to clean your water lines and water heater only. Pour the required amount of bleach into a hose, connect to the trailer and run it into the water lines that way. Don't open up the taps until you're able to go to each one and wait for the bleach smell in the water. I usually let the water in the tank sit overnight before I flush it out with fresh water.

The owners manual explains the entire process and requirements very well. I just follow it.

Thanks all. I knew the steps were in the manual, but they left me with questions. Taking the filter out now seems to be my sticking point. Thanks again!
