Received this RV Inline Sanitizer today, haven’t tried it yet but looks like it should work. Just add 8 oz for every 40 gallons of fresh water when filling the fresh water tank, then turn on faucets until bleach is smelled, let sit for 12 hours, and then later flush system with fresh water. Camping World has it as does Amazon. There is a YouTube video showing it’s use also. Simple and at $28 it’s overpriced but if it works I won’t complain. www.rvinlinesanitizer.com

You can use household laundry bleach. Same amount, let it set, then flush out. Can use baking soda to kill taste and odor.

That unit for $28 is just a container to hold your own household bleach.

Or you could just dump the bleach into the tank, or into a hose if you can't find the gravity fill on your tank.

All the RV Sanitizer does is pour bleach into the hose?
Send it back and get a refund.

I didn't open the link!
What is worse is that used as shown does not sanitize the fresh water tank.

Being poor and trusting bleach since 1978, I’ll stay with the tried and true. As my old buddy P.T. Barnum used to say...

It says to fill the tank with this bleach dispenser in the hose. It seems the same as putting the bleach in the tank for free.
