Once I fill the HWT for the campig season, it doesn't get emptied until I winterize it. I nave never "sanitized" the HWT. Why? Once you turn the tank on, it heats up to about 140-150 degrees which kills about anything that's in there. Besides, the closest I get to ingesting any water from the HWT is when I wash my face.
I always drain the water heater before towing. If the trailer is staying, then I leave the water in it.
No I am NOT retired. I work full time.:D
