I will sanitize my water lines when I de-winterize my camper. Then add antifreeze or blow out my water lines when I come home.

Just thought of something. We will have full hookup on our first outing. We are leaving TT winterized for our trip to TN next week. Do I still need to sanitize fresh water tank since we have city hookup?

Yes you should still sanitize the entire water system. Bacteria can and will grow in your water system. The fresh water will have to go through the water system in your RV and can pick up bacteria on the way. Will it happen, probably not. Can it happen, yes. Are you willing to chance it?

Dewinterize and winterize.....

Exactly how do I go about sanitizing the water system. Camper is new with anti freeze in it.

X2 on Mikeauto2's question.....I never thought of having to sanitize the drinking water system.....odd because I'm somewhat of a germaphobe...... I'd appreciate any guidance on how to do it.

I have already de-winterized and used the trailer this year, as soon as I got home I had the trailer winterized again in about 10 minutes, I blow out all the lines and add some antifreeze only to the drain pipes.

It's so simple to winterize, with a couple of timeS under your belt it becomes quite easy

We are de-winterizing today to get ready for our trip. I plan on spring getting here before we get back so won't have to winterize again until fall.

There is a page that covers this in the owners manual. Basically you flush out the system first with fresh water and drain. Then add 1/4 cup bleach to every 15 gallons your system holds, including the water tank and hot water tanks. Fill the tanks with water and bleach and let sit at least several hours, preferably overnight. Drain system, add fresh water again to flush out any left over bleach and drain system one final time.
