Bleach???? NO!!! Bleach is for sanitizing the fresh water tank!!! Quite simple. I like to attach a hose to the city water line and turn on the water. One at a time open all the faucets run them until all the pink is gone. Filling the fresh water tank is mostly the same but I prefer using the city water-its quicker! I normally dumped the grey water tanks on the street, except the black water which could get you removed from your subdivision. Dump that the first time you are camping. On the other hand all tanks could be dumped the same way at the same time. I'm assuming you you didn't use glycol anti-freeze instead of the gallon jugs of RV anti-freeze! Glycol will kill all yours and your neighbors pets. Have fun!!!
