    Smiles3Why didn't I think of that? Tips and Tricks:
    July 12, 2020We have a 2016 Winnebago Sunstar LX. Any ideas on how to get bleach into the fresh water tank.To sanitize? We have a check valve. Can’t put a funnel in to pour it in. Tried pouring it in the hose and flushing it through but that is tedious.

      Paul & Kay Legare July 12, 2020 Your using too much bleach. 50 ppm (parts per million) is more than enough. Double that if you're more comfortable and that still only requires one qt per hundred gallons of water. Let it sit for two or three hours and drain and flush.

        Smiles3 July 12, 2020 Sorry, the question isn’t how much bleach to use but how to get it into the freshwater tank. Maybe we have to pump it in like the antifreeze into the other tanks when winterizing.

        John & Diana July 12, 2020 That just goes into the holding tank.
        Smiles3 is asking about FRESH water tank.

      Solo Joe July 12, 2020 Shaking water out of your freshwater hose should leave plenty of room for enough bleach to sanitize your system in one shot.

        Smiles3 July 12, 2020 Yes but pouring it into the hose is very slow. I just thought someone might have a better idea.

      BLSMSS (Brenda &Marc) July 12, 2020 Have you tried cutting a water bottle end off in angle, they say the top is a good size, the add very little bleach and let it run down the bottle into you water tank

        Smiles3 July 12, 2020 Problem is the valve check. We need pressure to push it in.

      Colorado Kid July 12, 2020 Use approximately 1/4 ounce of bleach per gallon of holding tank capacity. A 75 gallon tank would take a little over 2 cups of bleach (about 19 ounces). If you get excess water out of your hose, you should be able to fill the hose with bleach from a funne...  more

      The Rolling Stones July 12, 2020 I just pulled your owners manual off the Winnebago website. It explains how to disinfect your fresh water system in Section 7-5.

        Smiles3 July 12, 2020 Thanks. Thought DH read that last year. I’ll check it again.

      Robbie & Alice July 12, 2020 Remove the sediment filter housing and remove the filter.  Fill the housing with your amount of bleach, screw the housing back on, turn the water on to fill the tank.

      Gene & Gretchen Hart July 12, 2020 I have a 2010 Coachman Mirada with a Generac generator. I have had it cut out several times due to low oil level. Very frustrating until you figure it out.

      Jim Lytle July 12, 2020 I use this. I mix 1/4 cup bleach per 15 gal of tank capacity in a a gallon jug. Fill the rest with water. Pump it in without the filter. Then fill tank the rest of the way as normal with filters in place.

      Bandit455 July 12, 2020 I use the gravity fill port on my Journey. Also, keep in mind, not all bleach disinfects. Make sure you buy the correct (unscented) type. If you buy Clorox bleach, their web site will tell you how much bleach to mix for sanitizing. Concentrated take...  more
