How to keep your RV's fresh water tank fresh

My tips are always picked up from other sources. I believe this is a good one and particularly as some of our friends may be getting their RV's ready to roll after a summer of sitting. We sanitized ours last Spring after arriving in Iowa and it has been obvious as we readied our rig for travel that it was a good idea. I think we over bleached it a bit and Butch was concerned and then he overfilled it by accident and I believe it all worked out as it should. Our water smells fresh and without any odor. We virtually never use our fresh water tank for drinking water . We drink bottled or filtered water while we are on the move. We wait till we are hooked to what we hopefully feel is good water and then it gets filtered twice before we drink it.
Here is a toast to good clean water!

How to keep your RV's fresh water tank fresh
by Mark Polk
Do not assume your RV's fresh water will stay safe and fresh like at home. Contaminated water is extremely dangerous. As RVers, we must not only deal with a water system that hasn't been used for some time, but we hook up to different sources and eventually contaminated water.
The most important step is to keep the fresh water system sanitized. At a minimum, sanitize it every spring or if you notice stale water or an odor.
Start by draining the water heater. Go to the outside compartment where it's located. Remove the drain plug in the bottom left-hand corner and open the pressure relief valve on top to assist in draining. CAUTION: Never drain the water heater when it's hot or under pressure. Next, locate the low point water line drains for the hot water and the cold. This is the lowest point in the system. Open and let the water drain out.
Now, find the drain for the fresh water holding tank and empty it. Then turn the water pump on briefly to force out any remaining water. Do not let the pump continue once the water stops draining. Close all the drains. You have now removed most water from the system.
Now take one-fourth cup of household bleach for every 15 gallons of water that your fresh water tank holds. Mix the bleach with water into a one-gallon container and pour it into the fresh water holding tank. Fill the fresh water tank almost completely full. Turn on the water pump, open all hot and cold faucets and run the water until you smell the bleach at each one. Close the faucets. If possible, drive the RV or pull the trailer so the water can move around to assist in cleaning the entire tank. Let it sit for at least 12 hours. Drain the entire system again and refill the fresh water tank with potable water.
Open all of the faucets and run the water until you no longer smell any bleach. You may need to repeat this process again to eliminate all signs of bleach from the system. Once that's done, it is safe to use your water system.

Do you want to know?

If you can put this puzzle together. You can say goodbye to Alzheimer's!  
This is really clever and a bit challenging. As we older people are concerned with Alzheimer's disease, this puzzle may help dispel some fear.   It's easy to put together if you are not affected by Alzheimer's disease, but impossible to do for someone with the disease.   Give it a try. If this puzzle is particularly difficult for you, then your physician can offer you additional testing to check you for Alzheimer's.
Just remember, if you can put this puzzle together , you do not have to fear Alzheimer's!  
A really neat puzzle!!  

Barb says: I didn't have any problem with it but all memory has been a bit challenging lately. Maybe there is just way too much stuff to remember?

More friends meet

Eula Henderson, Kitty Toomire and Marge Scott got together for a bit of catching up as well. You all three look super and it is good to see you enjoying each others company in the off season.

Floyd Flynt Passed

Word was received that Floyd Flynt passed away early this morning from complications of a pneumonia disease he contracted about a year ago that progressed into cancer. Floyd and Fran were a part of the Magnolia Park family for several years before selling their mobile a year or two ago. They had planned to change where they spent the winter but those plans were changed because of Floyds health issues and they ended up spending the last winters at their Arkansas home. I will post Floyds obit as soon as it becomes available.

Fran's address is:

Fran Flynt
918 E Parks St
Prairie Grove, AR 72753-8637
