Where is the fresh water drain valve RV?
Typically, the fresh water tank drain location is located on the underbelly of your RV, right underneath your freshwater tank, and will be attached to a pipe or hose.
Why won’t my RV fresh water tank drain?
If you are trying to empty the tank, then you could have a plugged vent pipe or a clogged fresh water drain or even a bad check valve. If you cannot get water out of the tank with city water on, then you may have a kinked water line leading out of the fresh water tank or bad check valve.
How often should I sanitize my RV water tank?
How Often You Should Sanitize. When it comes to sanitizing your RV water tank you should do it at least every six months. If you fulltime a six-month schedule is just fine. If you are intermittent when using your RV, you might want to consider a more regular schedule like every 3 months.
Should I empty fresh water tank on RV?
Unless you are boondocking for a prolonged period of time, it’s best to purge/drain and refill an RV’s fresh water tank at least every two weeks. This can often be as simple as running the water in the shower or putting a secondary hose down the toilet.
Can you put bleach in RV black water tank?
Cleaning your black water holding tank is best done when you’re fully hooked up and have both a water and sewer connection. Avoid using bleach or antifreeze for your deep clean, as both of these can dry out rubber seals and ultimately ruin your sewage system.
Does low point drain empty fresh water tank?
There should be up to three low-point drains. One for the cold water lines, one for the hot water lines and one for the fresh water tank. By leaving a faucet open on the hot water side, air will equalize pressure and easily drain the tank.
Does RV water pump need to be on when connected to city water?
No, you should not run the RV’s fresh water pump when hooked up to city water. The city water system should provide sufficient water pressure for your RV’s fresh water system. The pump is designed only to pump water out of your RV’s fresh water holding tank when you are not hooked up to city water.
Why does my fresh water tank fill when on city water?
When the city water pressure feeds fresh water into the on-board fresh water tank it means one of two things: either a “quick fill” valve is left open (or is faulty), or the check valve in the outlet side of the water pump has failed. In most cases, this check valve is integral to the pump.
