We just bought a new fresh water tank and it's ready to install. I'm thinking it probably be a good idea to wash it out first. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do this? Is there a cleaning solution for this?

Welcome it irv2, glad to have you here. You should sanitize the tank before use. Woodalls RV owners handbook suggest 1/4 cup bleach for each 15 gallons water. Drive the rig a mile or 2 so as to slosh it around and let sit overnight. Then drain and refill. I use a Camco hose attached water filter when filling the tank. Sanitize the tank after any period of unuse. Happy Trails!!

Hmmmm, don't I feel silly now. We put in a new tank after our first trip in our new-to-us 1979 travelaire because the old tank was full of algae ( YUK!) and we didn't even think to rinse out the new one! How dumb is that? Oh well, after 4 years it must be clean now!
