So should I drain the fresh water after every RV trip? I've heard not to fill fresh water full as that can be unnecessary weight. We live in Ca & if the fresh water tank is dry, will it crack? Sorry for all the questions & thanks for your advice! [emoji4]
Drain the old water out sanitize the tank with bleach. You'll need to do a search for the amount of bleach to a tank of water. Flush all your lines while your at it.

The pump is easy to dismantle and clean. You can also buy a rebuild kit on Amazon. If you don't want to be bothered with doing that again, install an inline check valve in front of the pump. No need to keep it full because of the weight but 1/2 would be good. Tank will not crack if empty. Fill it when you get to camp incase the park water goes down. Then you can sell it.
