RE: cleaning out freshwater system

Peggy _ I'm sure you are correct on the anode needing replacement from time to time, but in the hot environs of Lake Powell even with a good anode the rotten egg smell occurred over a winter in a drained tank that was backfilled with RV antifreeze. This happened on two different and new (0-3 years old) Searays. Shocking with bleach in the spring and fall and flushing cured the problem.
