How to pour bleach into fresh water tank?

My fresh water tank inlet has a one way valve that prevents pouring any liquid into the tank. How do you get a bleach mixture into the tank?

You must have a fresh water inlet for filling your tank for when you are not on city water. Check the other side of your trailer?

Yes, I do have a fresh water tank inlet - that is the problem - it has a valve that only allows water under pressure to enter. How do I pour a bleach mixture into a closed valve?

Not the garden hose connection
the one you just stick the hose into

You have 2 fw inlets the city water one you connect your hose on.
The second one the hose just kinda pushes into it. You need to poor it into that one

Terrel,
What is your trailer model? Others with your exact model might be better able to help.

Are you certain there are not two inlets - one for a city water connection and one for the fresh water tank? These are sometimes together like in the picture above and sometimes spaced apart.

My trailer has two inlets for fresh water. One is the city water, which has a valve like you describe, and the other is the fresh water opening that has no valve. I use this to fill with a hose or with a funnel and a container if I need to.

The bleach mixture I use (1/2 cup bleach to every 15 gallons of FW capacity) goes in the second one.

Thanks everyone

I have a Wildwood T22RBXL with two water inlets - one for fresh water and one for city water. The fresh water inlet has a valve and threads for a hose. Maybe the city water inlet does not have a valve, and I can pour the bleach mixture into it? I'll check.

i think you have it backwards.
the threaded one is the city water and the one with just a cap, is the FW tank.

look at f1100turbo's pic.

Waste water tank inlet

I think Forest river messed up and put a valve on the fresh water tank inlet just like the very similar city water inlet. So, I'll just remove the valve, right? If I can get the tool to fit the bolts.
