Its really weird, from the fresh tank to the pump there is this deep red crud, it looks like a raspberry got into the tank, the stuff dries like a deep blood color...
I was able to get a scope maybe half way up the hose (from tank to pump) and its half way coated, there was a slight kink in the hose and i couldnt get the scope past it, but the hose looked clear at that point.
Again, im not sure that red crap got passed the pump because the sediment trap is clean on the pump itself...
As for the water heater itself, Im going to check it and the suburban anode rod later today to see if it helped with the rust. We used the trailer this weekend, so its only been sitting since sunday night. During the weekend, cold and hot water came clear from sinks and showers
