Sanitizing water tank and plumbing w/water closet

How do you get bleach into the fresh water tank?

My TT had a gravity fill so it was easy. Manual on our new 5er says fill the water hose with the correct amount. Really?

Really!

Connect hose to your RV and set to 'FILL' position

Pour amount required of bleach in other end of your hose then connect that end to water supply spigot and turn on water. (1/4 cup per 15 gallon capacity)
Fill fresh water tank......you now have bleach mixture needed to sanitize system
