Sanitize

How do I get my sanitize solution in my fresh water tank? I have a 378ts georgetown motorhome. I can not find a place to pour the solution into.

You pour it into your fresh water tank fill.

If the GT does not have a gravity spout you will need to pour it into the fresh water hose.

Connect an empty hose to the GT.

Pour the solution into the hose.

Connect the hose to a faucet and turn the water on.

Fill the tank with water.

If you are using bleach, turn off the faucet and use the water pump to run the solution thru all of the water lines.

Let it sit over night.

Run a few more gallons thru the system with the pump.

Now drain the tank and refill with fresh water again with the pump run several gallons thru every faucet in your GT,

Is it possible that I could suck the bleach solution from a bucket using the pump, and valve it like I was putting antifreeze in the system to winterize. Would this flush it through the system?

Yes that would work.

That would get the sanitizer throughout the plumbing lines, including your whole house filter canister (remove filter) but will not get it into the holding tank if that is your goal. Pouring solution in a hose connected to the tank fill port will get it to the tank while filling it.
