These are correct...I am just going to reorder them to what we do. Hopefully this will make it a little clearer. Fill up your freshwater tank with water and throw some bleach in it (1 cup bleach per 15 gallons). Open all of your faucets (don't forget the outside shower) to run the water through the lines for a minute or two (you should be able to smell the bleach.) Leave it sit in your tank for 4 hours or overnight, empty the tank, fill it up again and dump it. Sanitizing now done!

Agreed on the PDI fail. I would however say that Rockwood is crazy for not producing a quick DVD for each style of unit that shows you everything you need to know to run your unit.

Thanks for all the help.
Since March seems to be a bit early to de-winterized for Colorado we will camp without water this weekend.

That's a great idea! Even BASIC information could be covered. Definitely something their marketing or customer service department should invest in.

I'll bet you Prime Time will be the first to have this in their new "How To" videos.

It really wouldn't be hard either. It should be part of the responsibility of every Forest River project manager in charge of each line.

Edit: A post on another thread reminded of these videos from by Mark Polk. They give the basics and provide a framework that can be used for a specific rig. You may have to do more or less depending on your rig but you get the idea.

There's one for Sanitizing the FW tank and lines.

Agreed, it would help a newbie like me refresh my skills. I searched Utube but did not find anything that would walk me through basics of my unit.

You want to be careful with how much bleach you use... or you could damage your water lines or tank.

ē Prepare a chlorine bleach solution using 1-gallon water and 1/4 cup of chlorine bleach. Use 1 gallon of solution for every 15 gallons of tank capacity. Example: Add 2-2/3 gallons solution to a 40-gallon tank. Add 4-2/3 gallons solution to a 70-gallon tank. Add 6-2/3 gallons to 100- gallon tank. This mixture puts a 50-ppm (parts per million) residual in the water system. This concentration will act as a quick-kill dosage for harmful bacteria, viruses and slime- forming organisms. Concentrations higher than 50-ppm may damage the water lines and/or tanks.
