A good idea was listed earlier; pour Clorox into the water hose, connect it to the RV or faucet, whichever end is loose, put selector switch on City Fill, and turn on the water which will push the water, with Clorox, into the tank. I would recommend removing filter cartridges first.

Thanks that makes sense I didn't read thoroughly.

Is it a FACT the water that goes into the fresh tank get's filtered first?

Yes, the water comes in through the panel, through the filter (I have 3), out of the last filter, to return to the panel. Then the panel selector switch allows you to choose 'Normal' (tank) to use your tank water, 'City Fixtures' to use water hose hook up, or 'City Fill' to fill your tank. Regardless of what you select, the water will have passed through the filters first. I'm going to bypass all of that and adapt to the output of the tank for input of Clorox and fill water.

I have only one filter. I will probably sanitize next time I change my charcoal filter. Simply sanitize without the new filter in place.

West Coast water is really good. Same anode last 5 years.

Thanks!!!

Here is my recommendation for a new water pump: Remco (55-AQUAJET ARV) Aquajet Rv Series Water Pump https://amzn.to/37tU6iY

I started the sanitize procedure today; it takes me a while to get things done. I ordered a water hose adapter to male 1/2 inch adapter. Disconnected the 1/2 inch female off of the last filter and connected the water hose, after pouring 1 1/4 cups of Clorox into the hose. Then filled the tank to 70 gallons. After opening the faucets to get the chlorine mixture into them, pulled in the slides, hooked up, and pulled forward, braking a few times, and then reverse, braking a few times. Hopefully, that sloshed the mixture around in the tank. Well drain and flush tomorrow.

That's about the easiest way and almost how I do it.

I have a small marine strainer after the last filter with no screen or element in it. When I sanitize I add the sanitizer to that filter assembly.

I use Purogen.

I am on the way up to the garage to drain the tank and could use some directions on where the drain valve is located. Ive looked in the belly down below the panel and havent seen it. Exactly, where is it, and what does the valve look like? Also, I have to log on EVERY TIME THAT I VISIT this site. I check the keep me logged in box, but as soon as I change web sites and return, I have to log in again. How can I make the site keep me logged in?

Found three of them. Two blues and a red for water heater. One blue for tank and one for water lines. AND, I had to log in again.

it's right under the water heater in the belly insulation. It's a simple oval handle that is 1/4 turn like under your kitchen sink at home. Just reach around you will find it. STUPID location!!!

Had to log in again. The anode was eaten away and I will replace it; posting a picture.; most of the corrosion is knocked off. All of it looked like the tip. I would like to use vinegar in the water heater tank but am clueless on how to get the fluid in the tank. Can someone offer advice?

Just flush the tank out. I think cameo sells a device that attaches to the end of a garden hose.

Did you find the fresh tank drain valve?

Yes, cummins, I found 3; posted above your last post. Ive seen the hose attachments, but that wont help putting vinegar in the heater tank.

I thought you were saying you could see the lines extending below the belly but couldn't find the actual valve.

Not sure the vinegar will do any good unless you could fill the whole tank. Just flush out good and carry on.

Like Cummins said, ditch the vinegar idea. Just flush the tank good, maybe with a homemade wand, and be done with it. That’s SOP.

Well finally, all finished. I removed the water heater over flow and dumped in some cleaning vinegar. The next day, it took a few hours of flushing, scraping, and vacuuming the tank. Yes, I posted vacuuming. But it is clean. Replaced the anode, cleaned the heating element, and filled the system; no leaks. Today, we installed a water pressure gauge in the input cold water of the kitchen sink faucet. It will display pressure of the pump or the city water, whichever is being used. The water pump is putting out 45 psi.

I cannot understand why some of my pictures display 90 degrees out. The are correct in my album but when uploaded, turn sideways.
