My understanding is that WRV didn't add the two cartridge filters until the 2006 model year. They are mounted to the bulkhead centerline and behind the power cord reel. When viewing from the front of the coach, the left canister holds a sediment filter and the right one is the carbon filter. If you are going to use the housings to add chlorine, use the carbon housing as the carbon filter has a near infinite capaciry to remove chlorine - absent organics. Put the chlorine in the canister and then fill tank to desired level followed by the suggested run thru all faucets - hot and cold. I think the smell test is OK, providing your nose still works. If you really care about the water you drink, get an RO unit!!!!

Turns out the problem with my non-closing dump valve for the fresh water tank was two-fold. There was a piece of plastic debris stuck in the valve which was cleaned out using compressed air- then it came out with the next flush. Also, the cable was kinked and the sheath was separating from the cable where it attaches to the valve. A replacement cable solved that. Access to the valve was made through the carpeted panel at the front bulkhead of that compartment.
