That's the approximate 'mix' I've used for at least 40yrs to sanitize RV water tanks. I usually add enough water (& chlorine bleach) to fill the tank(s) about a quarter full, then drive or tow for a half hour or so making sure to make several turns, stops, etc, so the water sloshes around in the tank. Afterwards I try to drain much of the water by running it through the lines/faucets to sanitize them also. Once in spring & again in fall should do unless you get some questionable water & want to 'clean' the tank again to get rid of taste, odor, etc.

I merely paid it forward. I read about it a number of years ago and it made sense to me, so I use that "technique." I know I'll use it again when I go to Bandon this year. When I get into my site, I'll open the dump valve into the sewer drain since I have full hookups.
