Regarding sanitizing, will this also have to be done to the lines after the anti-freeze is removed and new water filter put in the spring.

I take a small plastic water bottle and cut the bottom off to poor bleach threw. Same as a funnel I just happen to have to many bottles around.

The Georgetown has check valves on the hose connections so it is a tough chore to force bleach thru them. I pour the bleach into an EMPTY fill hose, connect to water supply and fill. That method also sanitizes your fill hose.

In addition to when I begin camping, I sanitize mine in the fall before winterize and then drain the tank for winter. Keeps any loose bugs from growing during storage.
