Sterilizing water tank

I have viewed several videos about using the clorox/water to clean the fresh water tank however my Class C Concord has no inlet other than the hose coupling and I'm not sure how to get the cleaner in!

You will need to use a funnel with a flexible hose.

If you don't have a gravity water fill or a winterizing port at your water pump, here's a couple more ways to insert the sanitizing solution.

You can fill your water hose with the the sanitizer, then connect it to the RV.

You can use a pump. I have a $12 drill powered pump and a couple short pieces of water hose (Camco makes them). Mix my sanitizing solution in a bucket and pump into the RV from the bucket. I also use the pump to put fresh water in the RV when dry camping.

It will go bad over time, a relatively short time.

We put the same water in swimming pools and you can see what happens to them. True your water tank doesn't have the same exposed surface area, but it DOES have an air vent allowing outside air "stuff" to get in.

Nirmal city water not high enough Cl to sanitize.
Use 1/4 cup per 15 gal of tank capacity pump through all fixtires and let sit overnight before draining and flushing.

I just put 1/4 cup bleach per 15 gallons (3/4 cup for my 46 gallons including water heater) poured into the hose with a funnel and then hook it up to the water spigot. Cleans the tank/lines and your h20 hose at the same time.

Drain the water from your hose and pour in the recommended amount of cleaner. Hook the hose up to the MH and turn the water on with the valve turned to tank fill.
