I have forgotten how much chlorine to use  to sanitise  my R77  R-Pod  fresh water system. Want to do it today so hopefully someone familiar with this will send a reply .

This is what the all knowing Google says: To sanitize the water system use a quarter cup of household bleach for every fifteen gallons of water your fresh water tank holds. Mix the bleach, with water, into a one-gallon container and pour it into the fresh water holding tank. Fill the fresh water tank almost completely full of potable water.

Thanks a bunch for that . I am thinking my RP177 holds about 17 gallons including the  hot water tank so 1/4 cup should be about right unless I hear differently from someone .

The reason for this variance is that time of exposure plays a big part. Lesser amounts of bleach simply require, within reason, increased length of time for the bleach to do it's thing.

pretty positive you have a 30 gallon fresh water tank like all the rest of us unless your pod was modified with a different smaller fresh water tank

Thanks for the replies. Now I will see if I can find the right number of l gallons for my particular model.


EDIT 
I tried to answer  with this same message a couple  times  from my tablet in the coffee shop on my tablet. It wouldn't let me send it. Warning comes up . It said spamming is not allowed  so can't post . . I wonder what that was all about . Works good on my PC . . . .lol . . .

I'll join the others in being shocked if you have anything other than a 30 gallon fresh water tank.  As someone else said, time is a factor in the equation.  Half a cup of bleach in 30 gallons for 4 hours I think.  A cup up bleach for an hour maybe.

The "spam" thing happens, in my experience, when you have a slow connection and try to re-post a message that seems like it didn't post but it did.
