Please help identify ACE components

I have a 2012 Thor ACE 29.1; and I am having difficulty getting a bleach solution into our fresh water tank. When I pour it in through a funnel and hose, it simply comes back. Maybe I can pump it in. Can someone identify the two items related to the pump on the attached image? Thanks in advance. Ray

Drain the water out of the garden hose, pour the bleach into the garden hose, connect it to the fill and open the garden hose.

The plug on the left is used as a blow out valve entry point, or to introduce antifreeze to the water system. The pull tab on the right is the low point drain for the freshwater tank and the rest of the system. Mine is slightly different as I have 2 drain valves one on each side of the pump.

The fresh water fill tube has a slightly uphill run depending on how your parked, I usually need full pressure of the hose to overcome that to fill the freshwater, once it starts flowing it does fine till its full. I never thought about adding bleach to the hose that is a good idea i'll try next time.
