So how do you get chlorinated water in your FW tank, if you don't use this external pump switch and a bucket?
City water is chlorinated and will stay good for several weeks. One of the reasons I don't drink it or use it to make coffee.

I have access at home to both city water (treated) and well water (untreated). We use the well water for drinking and cooking. We fill up a couple of gallon containers for drinking purposes. If it runs out we buy gallons of drinking water. I don't have a problem with drinking water out of a properly sanitized RV system, just don't like the plastic flavor it picks up.

Gotcha! Thanks Aaron. Any idea what the full capacity is of our FW tank?

47 or 49 gallons... I figure whole system is just over 55 gallons with the water heater, lines and tank filled.

Stinky Slinky Storage

My first modification, aside from removing that sewer "swing out contraption".

2 - 4 foot sections of 5" square PVC fence posts. Easily stores both 10' sections of sewer lines.

Nice job! I think I am going to go the 6" thin wall PVC route, mainly because I have a bunch of it all ready laying around. We are headed to the lake (state park) this weekend. Only planned mod is converting full beer bottles to empty beer bottles.

Waiting on some cooler weather to get here so we can REALLY start camping!

Thanks Aaron. I looked around Home Depot for round thin walled, but didn't see any. One of my favorite things is emptying out those damn full beer bottles. Have fun at the lake.

Well, I finally got around to trying to put some bleach water in my fresh water tank for sanitizing. Turns out that Pump Switch (inside the water station door) is exactly the same switch as the one inside the coach on the control panel. It does NOT pump water into the fresh water tank. I think this switch is just so you can control running water through the faucets (inside) without actually going inside and pressing the pump switch. I was hopeful that this was a well thought out "built-in" pump for pumping anti-freeze or bleach water into the fresh water tank.

As a result, I decided to just order this for now, to pull my 4 gallons of bleach water into the fresh water tank.

I should have read the reviews a little closer, this may just be junk. If it is, I think I'll go with this little guy.
