RV FRESH WATER TANK 👍 FANTASTIC SANITIZING DRAIN HACK 👍
Make draining your fresh water tank AFTER SANITIZING way EASY.
This method will leave your RV site dry & it's better for the environment. This is a real game changer.
There’s a much better way to dispose the bleach & rinse water than draining it out on the ground. Think of it this way…..once I drain all the bleach water out of my fresh water tank and then do a rinse, that’s about 150 gallons of water that just drains onto the ground. Your amount of water may vary. But depending on where your located at the time you sanitize, it can and often does create a big muddy mess for days all around the RV. There’s just a better way to do this to make it easier, cleaner and better for the environment. I’m going to show you a real neat HACK I came up with that makes draining your fresh water tank after sanitizing a real game changer.
I know some of you think using your fresh water tank is not safe to drink or cook with, so you carry toxic plastic water bottles or carry big jugs of water, or perhaps a Berkey water filter or maybe an under the sink filter that you use for drinking and cooking. If you want to keep practicing those methods, I mean that’s fine with me, but it’s just not necessary. All that other stuff takes up more room, adds more weight to your RV, creates more plastic that ends up in land fills and we don’t need more of that. If you filter your water properly BEFORE it comes into the RV or fill up your fresh water tank, and then sanitize your entire fresh water system once a year, using your fresh water tank all the time—for everything—is totally safe. Putting these practices into place, you’ll have safe, good tasting water throughout your RV all the time.
This custom adapter I made will work on just about every RV fresh water tank. Your tank drain will obviously be located in a different place than mine, but the application is still the same.
WANT TO MAINTAIN AN AIR GAP FOR ADDED SAFETY: If you’re not comfortable snapping on a sewer hose extension—on tight—onto this new adapter I’ve installed & you’d like to maintain an air gap between the sewer hose & the fresh water tank drain line……use 3 electrical ties and cinch the hose up to where there is a slight air gap.This will allow the sewer hose to hang BELOW the fresh water tank drain line—maintaining an air gap between the two. Now you’ll still be able to drain the fresh water tank after sanitizing without dumping it out on the ground, making a big mess and hurting the environment.

DISCLAIMER: We are in no way experts or professional mechanics. But being a journeyman millwright for years & being EX Military, has proven to be very helpful in my lifetime learning how to care for & maintain all sorts of machinery & equipment like: helicopters, airplanes, tanks, motorcycles & many types of other vehicles. That, along with 18 months preparing & upgrading our RV before we went full time, & now traveling for several years has gained us a lot of knowledge. Regardless of what we recommend, consult a professional if you're unsure about working on your RV. Work you perform or products you purchase based on any information we provide is at your own risk.
