We just purchased this 2016 177 SE. We want to sanitize the fresh water and hot water tanks. Where is the drain located for these tanks and how do you put the chlorine bleach into the system?

The drain plug for the water tank is underneath near the rear wheel on the side with your entry door. It’s a small PVC plug. Hold the pipe with one hand and use a crescent wrench to loosen the plug. The hot water drain is the large bolt (1 1/16″) located in the outside hot water heater compartment on the other side of the trailer near the front. You will need a socket to remove it. When you remove the rod it will look corroded, but that is normal. The rod should be changed every few years. There is a fill port for the water tank on the same side. Personally, we carry bottled water for drinking, cooking, ect. Water from the tank or city water supply is for flushing the toilet or a shower only!
