Not sure if it is the same in your area, but my dealer recommended that I fill my fresh water tank with our City water because it is so chlorinated and will sanitize the tank.

Hi tanracing, We never sanitized our little old trailer. Mainly because we bought it used and didn't really understand it was important. We made a lot of mistakes. But nevertheless, the water was never foul and probably because of the chlorine like your dealer said. But with this baby we are trying to do things "correctly" since mistakes are costly

For adding a bleach/water mix to the fresh tank, I cut the label area of one of those brown plastic rootbeer bottles (16 oz or so) to make it like a boat/reservoir. The top of the bottle fits into the fresh water inlet and is easy to pour the mix into the tank.

Hey folks! We purchased a 198rd last year (our 1st tt) and are extremely happy with it. Regarding the fresh tank fill, I experienced the exact same thing. If you take a look in the bottom cabinet just left of the fridge you'll see the tank hose. Ours curved up higher than the inlet which caused the water to pour or gurgle back out. My wife held it down when we filled and it worked just fine.

We took it back for warranty work during the winter and they cut off the excess and made a nice down grade slope. Now we just insert a hose and take care of other tasks while the fresh tank fills.

Happy camping!
