Thanks and happy camping
Oh no, that's exactly what I did (and worked for me). I drained the hot water from the valve until it ran cold. Then I turned on the shower, drained until cold and did the same thing with the inside faucet. It took about 4 attempts and now I have water that doesn't smell.
How would you spray the inside of the water heater directly? If I had known that perhaps I could of saved myself a lot of time. And where would you get at the sacrificial anode rod to replace?
Camping is a learning experience for sure....
Thanks to all for your replies.
