Fresh Water Tank Drain Problems

I recently purchased a 2002 Holiday Rambler TT. The way the drain for the tank is plaeced it is not the lowest point on the tank, there is about 2" of water still in the tank after opening the outside drain. The water in the tank has been in their a long time based on what I can see floating in it. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get this water out? Thanks! Chris

Try using a manual type gas siphon hose with the bulb. After you have removed all the water you can, follow this procedure: sanitizing your RV water system.
Bleach may not remove slime or algae from your water tank. That link explains how.
