Motorhome/RV Fresh Water Tank

Common Motorhome/RV Fresh Water

Motorhome Freshwater tanks should be sanitized regularly, especially in hot weather. To freshen the water system, follow these steps:

  1. Fill the water tank half full.
  2. Add a solution of 1/4-cup household bleach and 1 gallon of water for every 15 gallons of tank capacity.
  3. Open all the faucets until all air has been bled from the system and the water coming out has the odor of the bleach solution before shutting off the taps.
  4. After three to five hours, drain the water system and refill it with fresh water
  5. Run water through all faucets and then drain the system again.
