Water System Cleaning

I am about to sanitize the water system on our 2014 MADP for the first time(for me). In my previous gasser it was pretty straight forward. Perhaps it still is. My uncertainty lays with the additional appliances. Ice maker in fridge, dishwasher and washing machine. I know to shut off the icemaker. And I am assuming that I just ignore the washing machine and the dishwasher. The is no water heater. So am I close to right?

I just did mine the other day... Drain the fresh water tank, then I take off the whole house filter canister, remove the filter, put about 2 c. bleach in the canister and reattach it. Fill the tank. Open up each of the faucets for get the bleach/water into all the lines, then let it sit for a day or 2. Drain all the water,replace filter in canister, refill the tank. I don't mess with the dishwasher or washing machine.

All - when I do mine, similiar process, but I do make sure the clorox/water solution gets into the outdoor shower, low point drains, washing machine, and dishwasher. We kept the water/ice maker turned off the whole time we owned our coach, and use a counter filter for the water there. The new one we will use it to make sure it does not leak and works, since some people have had some issues with it. THe new ones are much more reliable than older units. Then if you are not going to use washer/dishwasher/water in dorr of refer, each have shutoff's which can be closed and yo wont have to worry about them again. Leave solution in for 4-5 hours, then drain out FW tank, fill with known good water, and flush the lines previously mentioned. you should be good to go.
