Installing a switch is a very good idea...

It is better to have too much truck than to have too much trailer.

I have always used a couple of boxes of baking soda. Mix it with some water and put in in the tank. Pump through the system, let it sit for an hour and then flush the tank and system with fresh water. Sanitizes but leaves the tanks and everything with no smell at all.

When I did this with cruising boats, there were those who went out and got a big bottle of cheap vodka....

You are correct. I will, however, remove any taste and smell from the system and clean the lines of most particulate.
