Fresh Water System Sanitizing
Trying to get our 2012 Melbourne 29D on the road. Have flushed the antifreeze from the winterizing process, but now cannot get the bleach sanitizing solution to pump into the fresh water tank. The tank is about 3/4 full, so there is plenty of room for the bleach solution. The water pump works fine through all the lines with valve switches in the "normal" position. When I turn valves to the sanitize tank position and turn on the pump, nothing happens. There is no suction on the short hose attached to the fresh water inlet. Also, nothing through the sanitize lines setting. I have the bucket with the bleach solution raised about two feet off the ground, and I've tried priming the fill hose by pouring solution into the raised hose through a funnel. Can I just pour bleach through a funnel into the inlet hose with a gravity feed? That's all I did with my old travel trailer, and that worked fine. That said, I'd sure like the motorhome system to work!
