Great idea ! I'll try that next time.

I normally pump it in to the city connection and then pump some into the rinse line.

I use the factory winterizing draw tube that's right behind my blue hose in the pic to pull in the antifreeze with my water pump. Winterize the rig then pump a bit into the black tank flush.

Youroo I dont call mineral deposits from hard water crud... Its just minerals.. that's why I thought you were talking holding tanks. The deposits form on the heating element; then fall to the bottom of the tank. How the heck can these deposits get "downstream" into the water system when they're coming out of the HW tank while draining happily away? They really come out when i give it a shot of air with all faucets closed to further remove more water. You have to better explain how deposits on the bottom of the tank gets up into the water system. I don't see how that is possible.
