roadtrek suburban water heater cleaning

Hi guys
I have a new to me 2012 roadtrek adventurous
I will be de-winterizing in a couple of weeks
besides other procedures. I was reading about after using a cleaning wand. in my suburban water heater putting vinegar
to clean more sentiment out?
I was wondering if i proceed ? (any thoughts?) what is the best way to get the vinegar in ?
thanks, kim

Unless you have evidence of lots of scale, (mineral deposits) it may not be necessary to use vinegar. The YouTube video shows the procedure if you have a winterizing system to draw liquids into to system. If you don't, you could disconnect the water pump intake and put a hose on the line and draw the vinegar in that way. Adding a 'T' fitting, valve, and winterizing hose isn't hard, and a good addition if your's isn't equipped.
