Customer Question
My Fleetwood Flair RV...

My Fleetwood Flair RV has been setting for a year or so not being used. Looks great! But need to treat the Water heater and holding tank with something to clean the smell out. It has been winterized. How do I get into the water heart and the water tank to treat and with what a 1996

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant level? Has there been any leaking from the hoses?

Have checked, theres none

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Fleetwood?

1996

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Fleetwood yourself? What have you tried so far?

Everything works great except I need to treat the water heater and holding tank with something. But don't know how to get into either.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No thank you. I appreciate you

If this has been winterized, do you want to do this now? Did you use RV antifreeze or just drain it?
