also wondering if I use bleach in the fresh side, since water WILL get into the hot water heater tank (because of the broken bypass) if this will hurt the Atwood water heater tank.
First: YOu might check the water incoming.. Some of it is kind of aromatic as it were.. But there may be some bacteria in the system so I'd flush it again with your bleach water 1/4 cup to a5 gallon ratio.. . Then with baking soda water,, Then fresh water
IT WILL NOT HARM THE TANK
What would I do for drinking water
All water entering the Motor home goes past some activated charcoal,, Drinking water also passes through a Brita filter.. There are better filters if you wish to spend the money. But Brita does the job for me.
NOTE: Since I drink park water filtered... it is kind of important to me the filters work.. Else the toilet has to work overtime (The real cause of that old revenge is changes in the water).
