Cloudy water...?

I'm getting cloudy water but only on the hot water lines? Anyone ever ran into this?

Yep, my water pump injects a bit of air in the water.. enough to make you do a double take sometimes. Nothing is leaking, so I don't worry about it.

Would air affect only hot water lines? I filled a clear plastic cup with water from the cold water and hot water at both sinks and shower.. the cold water is pretty clear but the hot water is very cloudy...

Have you ever winterized it with antifreeze?
It took me a long time to get the antifreeze residual out of the hot water line and it stayed cloudy for quite a while...i got a bunch in the hot water tank by accident.

it was winterized when i bought it 6-7 months ago. i cleared the lines and have been using it for 6 months no problem.

it seemed to get like that within the last 2 weeks. about the last 6 weeks i have been using the hot water very little.. well using as little later as possible to conserve it so I'm wondering because water sat in the water heater tank not being used it caused that?

Maybe drain the hot water tank and see what comes out.

Important part is to know for a fact if we're talking about tiny bubbles - or contamination.

When you set the cloudy water down for a minute... does it clear up starting from the bottom to the top? (that's what mine does) If your water doesn't do that, I sure as <insert word of choice> wouldn't drink it.

Thanks thats a good idea... I'm not exactly sure how to drain the hot water heater? I have a 2016 jay flight 24 FBS. The cover/ lid is on the right side of trailer. There is a star age compartment below that with a low point drain...?
