was just looking at this thred as the jayco i bought has a water tank. i flushed the tank out with tank cleen from camac, glad i did i also now youse the white food grade hose as well. i learnt my lesson when we camped at straddie last, i thought it was the water over there that made me sick unfortunatly it was the water drums that we were youseing, even the dogs got sick :(

what i would like to know is do you leave water in the tank & IF SO HOW LONG FOR BEFORE CHANGEING IT as i realy dont want to get sick again :)

We boil our water from out of our tank. I drain it out at the end of our trip and give it a good flush out before filling it just before we leave for next trip, but we never drink it straight from the tank.

I have a stainless steel tank and only ever use it for non drinking water, always carry the drinking water separate.

Had an incident occur once when the brass bung on the CT was damaged and we lost all the water....not so good:-((

Fortunately I already had some drinking water in a separate container which got us out of immediate trouble.

We had just commenced our outback trip it meant that I had to re fill the tank which was not the easiest thing to locate at Tibooburra and I then had the added expense of buying bottled water for drinking.
