Did it Again

Without a doubt getting older but no wiser.
After a wonderful 5,000 mile one month visit and see the country trip, parked in the backyard and ignored. Six weeks later finally realized the water needed to be drained, system flushed, etc. The smell from the hot water tank was amazing to say the least. Bacteria heaven. This is the second time. Ah well, maybe I will learn this time.
Then again, if we just take more trips it will never be a problem!

Never drained my hot water tank,quit flushing my water tank,never any problem. I use the unit every month and try and put clorine water in the tank. When I get to a campground and the water is high in chlorine I add water and always travel with 1/3 tank for flushing on the trip. I don,t like the taste of chlorine so I used bottled water for coffee and drinking. The tank and campground water I use for showers and the flushes. May I Use the unit often enough not to have this problem. Having fun reading the posts and playing on my phone. Jeffp camping fan.
