    My fresh water smelled of sulphuric rotten eggs. I cleaned it with bleach 6 months ago, used the MH and parked it for 3 weeks. I usually carry less than 20 gallons of fresh water.The smell came from the fresh water hookup at the campground.The campground water was OK. Is it possible that the water pipes can become fouled that soon?

    Fresh Water Smell

    HI!
    Did you also run this mixture through out all water lines, including the waterheater, and let it set for a few hours? I had this same problem. Found it came from the hot water. Flushed the system with clorine mixture including the water heater, and let it set overnight. Then flushed the system a couple of times. This cured my problem. :cool:

    Has anyone tried Potassium Permamagnae? It is supposed to be a drinking water tank cleaner. Not used much anymore.
