Bubbles, On my 3850RL, one of the docking station lever settings is for Sanitizing the tank, specifically. On that setting, with the pump on, it sucks water from the city inlet, and pumps it into the fresh water tank. This is also how I fill my fresh water tank when camping for extended periods when there are no water hookups.

Here is a photo of my docking station I found on the net

Nice to see some thoughtful engineering effort is showing up in some needed system installs.

Yea, its hard to read in the photo, but there are like 5 different lever configurations that change the flow/function:

1) sanitize the fresh water tank(sucks from city inlet, pumps to fresh tank)
2) city water connection (no tank)
3) dry camping(draw water from fresh tank)
4) power fill (fills the tank from city connection)
5) winterize (sucks from city inlet, pumps directly to fixtures)

Has anyone tried a siphon injector to add the bleach? Something like: Grow More Yellow Siphon Mixer Fertilizer Injector | eBay


As an added comment. From my experience homebrewing beer, you could substitute iodophor for bleach. I use one of the iodophor products to sanitize beer and wine bottles before filling. This is an iodine based sanitizer that does NOT need to be rinsed off (you actually need iodine in your diet - most people get it from salt). Might be an option for folks who for whatever reason don't like putting bleach in their tanks. I know that milk producers use Iododphor to wash their cows before and after milking. It is also used in restaurants when washing dishes. You can buy the stuff from most homebrew or wine making supply places. Only downside to the stuff is that it can stain plastic if left in contact for an extended length of time.
