Elddis autoquest 180 2012 water tank query

HI I have not long bought a 2012 Autoquest 180 , love it by the way... Think i have mastered most of it now only thing i need advice on is refference to the cold water storage tank. I want to clean it but as its plumbed to the whale auto fill how do i go about adding a cleaning agent to the tank? I looked underneath and can not see any access points to the tank .... Also i have read many bits of advice regarding cleaning , vinegar and cleaning agents you can buy ... any advice on this also would be appreciated.

Ii wont be drinking the water from the tank ever but would like to know its as clean as i can make it with in reason. Hopefully some one here can advise me

thank you ....

Hi Jono and welcome.
I personally don't know your particular rig or set up but as has been mentioned a few times in various posts on her maybe a very small amount of bleach can keep the tank pure. One tea spoon per 100L. ish.

I empty ours after each trip then if not used for a few weeks rinse it through with clean water before the next trip.
We use the water the same as we would at home

PS. A warm welcome.

Hi and welcome to MHF, if you replace the filter with a section of pipe you can clean it following any advice you may find on here, as we don't drink from ours, we never clean it, but do drain it down and let it dry out now and then.
