Both my inlets are threaded with valves. Someone messed up at the factory.

Sounds like you're looking at the city and winterizing inlets... Model and pics will help.

My XLR only has one threaded hose inlet. Next to the hose inlet is a lever that when turned, diverts the water from city, to fill the fresh water tank. Turn it back to city for when hooked to a water source.

The water tank will only fill with water pressure. I can not fill it with water jugs, or trying to pour any thing into it.

I too wondered how to sanitize the tank, or how to add water when dry camping.

I also have a XLR that has one threaded water inlet and a switch value. When I asked the same questions earlier, others told me to add the bleach to the fill hose before starting the water.

Assuming the OP is right that both have hose fittings (I doubt it like the rest of you)- there is something you could do to add bleach.

- Pour the bleach into a soda bottle.
- Make sure the hose you are going to use is mostly dry inside.
- Attach the soda bottle to the hose. It won't screw in, but you can hold the ends together.
- Hold the hose end and the bottle high and pour the contents of the bottle into the hose.

The bleach will now be sitting inside the hose. Hook it up to the trailer and fill it. I would recommend using two people for this to make sure the bleach doesn't pour back out onto your lawn.

Once again, please post a pic of what yours looks like. The last thing you want to do is assume you have sanitized your system; but haven't. (OK, last thing would be to pour bleach where it doesn't belong.)

before you do that, i suggest you post pics first.
