Wife and I just purchased a 31M in November and had to immediately winterize since we live in the Sierra Foothills. Question I have now that I am getting ready to de-winterize it is, does anyone know if it has any other water filters than the one for the drinking water spigot in the kitchen?

Also what is recommended if any thing to treat the water storage tank?

This is our first MH and we can't wait to take it to Indiana later this summer. We plan short local trips to get the hang of it. Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome and can be emailed to me if you like

Thanks for helping out the new guy!

We have a Jamboree 31M also. The filter to the drinking water faucet at the kitchen sink is the only filter other than the screen at the water connection. We remove the drinking water filter when we winterize, use pink RV Antifreeze and run it through all faucets, the stool, the outdoor shower and by pass the water heater. When dewinterizing, we use a cup of bleach in the fresh water tank, leaving it overnight and then flushing the water system and filling with fresh water. Your manual gives more detailed directions.

Thanks for your replies. The bleach and letting it set is what I was told by many others in conversations.

For what ever reason my wife is opposed to the idea of bleach in the tank. She is afraid it will leave a bleach taste in the tank. I would think that 1 cup to about 35 gallons of water would be unnoticeable. She keeps telling me that her parents never did it to their RV.

Maybe I will just do it and not tell her and see if she notices it.

We use about 1/4 cup of bleach per 15 gallons of tank capacity. Ideally, we then drive the MH a few blocks to slosh the water around in the tank. After it then sits awhile, we run each facwet (both hot and cold), including the outside shower, for about 30 seconds each. Next, we drain and re-fill the tank with fresh water and repeat the fluch at each facwet. We have never had a bleach taste problem.
