We don't get nearly as much use out of our RV as I would like, so when we get home from a trip, I drain the fresh water tank and open the low point system drains. When we get ready to leave next, I close everything up, hook up the fill hose to the City Water Inlet, pour about 1/2 cup of Clorox down the fill hose, hook it up to my hydrant in the garage, and put about 15-20 gallons of (country well) water in the tank. I'll stop the water and go in the trailer and turn the pump on, and open every faucet until water appears, then I'll turn the pump off and go back to filling the tank or stowing the hose until we get to our destination. I do it to keep my system 'clean' since I'm on untreated water. And we'll bring a case of bottled water for drinking and cooking. Tank water will always taste like tank water. JMO.
