Looking for gravity filler for fresh water tank

I have a 2001 Monaco Windsor and I would like to do a bleach clean out on the fresh water tank. However, I cannot find the gravity filler referenced in the manual. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Empty your shore hose and pour the bleach in the hose. Hook it up and turn it on. Voila, bleach goes into the tank. You don't need no stinkin' gravity fill.
Merry Christmas

Would that be enough bleach to thoroughly disinfect the tank? Owners manual suggests a mixture using a heck of a lot more!
Merry Christmas and thanks for the quick reply.

Measure what you need to put into the tank as you pour it into the hose. when the hose is full connect it and turn on the water to push the bleach into the tank. If you need to add additional bleach then turn the hose off, drain the water out, put in more bleach into the hose, reconnect it, turn on the water. REpeat this until you've put in whatever amount of bleach you need to put in.
Or, use a water filter housing inline with your water hose.
Or, maybe someone will tell you where your gravity fill is if, in fact, you actually have one.
This is really not a difficult procedure........

Right Kix, it's not difficult the way you've described it, and yes, that's probably what I'll do. Still, I'd like to know if and where the top filler is........

It is usually in the utility service bay on the large white panel. I don't know for sure on your coach but in the photo below the country fresh water fill in on the left. It is the large plastic bulge that the orange power cord is warped around. There is a twist off cap on the top tethered to the bulge. Just remove that and pour your mixture in.

And....realize that for several years around late '90's early "00's some bright folks in purchasing thought we always had hookups and they could save a few $$ per unit. SOOO...for that time period a lot of coaches have no gravity fills. Most do once again.

Also manuals and "as built" rarely are 100% together on many things.

On my Monaco Dynasty it is located in a small locked panel above the water service bay.

If your Windsor is like my 2003 Windsor the water tank and fill cap are as shown in the following image.

As my unit is 36', my guess is it does not have one. I've had the unit for a year now and know it fairly well.
Thanks for your responses.
