I have the filter under the sink, but not an external inline outside at this time. that will be a future installation.

Number 1 I never drink the water that is in the MH system, just don't trust those little microbs won't get in there. We carry bottled water cases of it to cook, drink and supply for our Weimaroner. I tried feeding the dog a few times but she won't touch tap water in the MH so we don't. We shower and wash dishes in it and of course to flush with. The MH has a filter we replace annually and I flush with bleach also. We have been doing it this way for 10 years, 3 in the MH.

Gosh--if you are just as picky about where you get the water from as you are about bottled water, I doubt if many /if any of those little "microbs" would ever get in there in the first place. With annual cleanings, have been using the water in the tank when need, ie dry camping, and have never been attacked by any microbs--just saying. Save the planet, use less plastic--not really.......

XX2! Fresh water fill on the passengers side or pressure hose fill in wet bay. One cup down the fresh water fill, run water through the lines and let sit. Then I drain the fresh water tank and refill. I leave the filter in so it gets it too. I also bypass the hot water tank. Very simple. What's simpler is to drain the fresh water tank every other week and add new water. Plus, I always drain it when it sits at home. We drink both bottled and water out of the tank, but we usually stay in the NW and most places have pretty good water.

The correct amount to sanitize the system is cup per 15 gallons of fresh water. Leave for at least 4 hours, then flush.

On our DSDP's we've had the intake for the winterizing works great.

How do you keep the water tank fresh and clean when sitting for long periods of time when connected to city water supply? Do you drain the water tank?

One way is to leave your water pump on and it will feed from the fresh water tank along with the city water. When your fresh water tank gets low then you refill it as you would normally.
