RV city water is discolored then clears after 10 seconds

I've changed the filter, but when opening any water faucet, the water is discolored then clears after about 10 seconds of flow. There is no odor or taste to the water. I've flushed the system by adding cleaner to the tank and running all faucets until the tank emptied, then ran to clear the tank. However the color soon returns when running on city water. The water from the city faucet is clear. as is the water from the hose and filter. Any idea as to the cause?

We added anti freeze into our water hold tank. There is a pink film on the bottom of the tank. How do we clean the film out of the tank?

problem is there is an RV for your system. you will need to do the following.
Drain all holding tanks, fresh water and sewage
  1. Attach garden hose to fresh water fill and fill tank.
  2. Turn on pump switch and open cold water side of all faucet/ shower fixtures. Leave open until water runs clear. Repeat for hot water side.
  3. Flush toilet until clear water runs into bowl.
  4. Dump tanks again.
  5. Sanitize water system. use a water sanitizer
  6. If a water filter is installed, drain lines, remove filter assembly, clean and reinstall with new filter.
  7. When ready to use the water heater, turn by-pass valve to open position to allow water to enter and fill the hot water heater tank.

How do I winterize my 2015 Jayco Jay Flight 32 RLs

Go to an RV parts store for a winterizing bypass kit for the water heater. Use POTABLE RV antifreeze and follow the instructions on the bottle. Drain all the water out of the water tank. Install the bypass kit on the water heater if it doesn't already have one. Put the water heater in the bypass mode. Add the antifreeze to the water tank. Open every water faucet including the shower head one at a time until antifreeze is present. Do this for hot and cold on every faucet. Once that is done, turn off the water pump and open all the faucets. That's all there is to it. Rember... DO NOT use automotive antifreeze. It will kill you.

Our 131 faucet leaking from under the cover, is it defective?

if this is installed in a small rv , wow I know all about the problem with these , seems this type of pump allows one to draw water from a storage tank on board and the user provides the "power" via moving the handle up/down to draw up the water , but then when in the park you can connect fresh park water to faucet and using the same handle in opposite direction pressurized water flows out of it , first thing , its in a rv !! if inside air temp is not maintained 24/7 365 between 35F and 210F it plastic its gonna crack (mine did) and I don't know about you but my rv is outta my mind in the off season so no temp is being maintained inside it , if this is what happened then just replace it , no glue will hold up to its use ! second parks water pressures vary so carry your own water pressure regulator and use it between park and your rv ! these things only handle about 40 psi and then they crack open , and last but not least invest in some food grade rv antifreeze this is great stuff to "put up" the rv for the off season run it thru everything that gets water into it saves you tons on replacing things in the spring time

How do you de-winterize 28DSBH

Connect the trailer to the city water supply, turn on the water and open each faucet until clean clear water is present. Don't forget the toilet and outside shower if equipped. Next reinstall the anode rod (suburban) or drain plug (atwood) into the water heater. Go to the back side of the water heater and close the valve on the pipe that connects the cold (bottom line into water heater) and hot (upper line out of the water heater) and then open the bottom cold water line valve and, if equipped, the upper hot water valve. This will fill the water heater. Open the hot water valve at the kitchen faucet. When the water flow is steady the water heater is full and ready for use. If the unit is equipped with a water filer, after all is flushed out, turn the water off and remove the filter housing. Install a new filter and re-secure the housing and turn the water back on. If you are using the fresh water pump, it is possible that the winterizing valve for the pump was left open. If so, close that valve which will divert the pump back to drawing from the tank.

I have a pull out Glacier Bay kitchen faucet. Today our city did some work on the water main and brought a lot of sediments into our water line. I took off the aerator and nothing. I took off the head...

Is this the only faucet exhibiting this problem? If so, you'll probably need to disconnect the lead-in lines under the sink and then open the shut-off valves to clear them. If more than one faucet is messed up, your water heater (or a whole-house water filter, if you have one) may be plugged. Check your heater manual for flushing procedures; then change the whole-house filter.

When I run hot water for the tub, it has a brown tint

10 year old homes today usually do not have galvanized pipe. They have copper or pex plastic pipe. These do not rust.
Is rusty water on both hot and cold line, or just hot line?
Just hot line, then check anode rod and flush tank:
Are you on water well? Well casing can get rusted. Water can have minerals. Call local water well service and describe problem in detail.
Are you on city water or mudd district water? Is pipe coming into house made of galvanized? Look inside meter box or look at pipe coming into house. Sometimes the city water line at end of run can get filled with sediments that will discolor water. Have water company flush the city water line.

Water from bathtub faucet is orange when first turns on. The plumber says it is not rust. The pipes are all copper. It becomes clear after about 30 seconds but by the next morning the water is cloudy...

You didn't mention the source of the water. Is this a well or connected to a water system? If is a well you might need to install a filter on the line coming into the house. Does the orange water stain or have any odor? It is possible that there is a loose connection somewhere allowing sediment to leach into the line when there is no active flow.

I have my Mom's 193909WB coffeemaker, It runs like a top! How do I clean it?

Here are the cleaning instructions directly from West Bend's instruction manual. Good luck!

Cleaning Instructions
1. Unplug coffeemaker and allow to cool before cleaning.
2. Clean basket, stem and cover in hot soapy water with a dishcloth, rinse and dry. Coffee stains on underside of cover or stem may be removed by scouring with a damp cloth and a non-abrasive cleanser.
3. Clean inside of coffeemaker by filling with hot water until about one-third full. Add small amount of liquid dishwasher detergent and wash with a dishcloth or sponge. Then clean the heating unit well (where stem fits) with a scouring pad, to remove coffee residue. Twist pad inside heating unit well to clean thoroughly. IMPORTANT: If heating unit well is not kept clean, coffeemaker will not perform properly.
4. After cleaning inside of coffeemaker, drain and rinse inside. Clean faucet by letting clear water run through it into sink, while moving faucet handle up and down. Drain water from inside of coffeemaker and dry.
5. Clean outside of coffeemaker with a damp cloth and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use abrasive metal scouring pads or cleansers on outside of coffeemaker as scratching will occur.


Special Cleaning Instructions
To Remove Mineral Deposits: If coffeemaker is used daily, a special cleaning every 2 weeks OR every week if used for heating water, is necessary. Fill coffeemaker with 1 quart each of water and white distilled vinegar. (If a white mineral buildup has formed on inside of coffeemaker, use an additional 2 cups of vinegar.) Place stem and empty coffee basket in place, secure cover onto coffeemaker and plug in. Allow coffeemaker to complete perking cycle, then let stand for 10 to 15 minutes. Unplug and drain coffeemaker. Allow to cool and follow general cleaning instructions.
To Remove Discoloration: Inside of the coffeemaker can discolor when used for heating water, which is normal. To remove/lighten discoloration, fill coffeemaker with water to the level of discoloration (at least to the 12 cup level, but not past maximum cup level). Place stem and empty basket in place. For every 12 cups of water added to coffeemaker, add 2 teaspoons cream of tartar to basket. Secure cover onto coffeemaker, plug cord into coffemaker and then into outlet and allow coffeemaker to complete perk cycle. Let stand for 15 to 20 minutes or until discoloration is lightened. Unplug cord and drain coffeemaker. Allow to cool and follow general cleaning instructions.
Do not use baking soda to clean coffeemaker, as it will discolor inside metal.
After frequent use, coffee residue may collect inside faucet. To clean, unscrew top half of faucet. Move a small brush up and down through faucet. Insert brush through opening inside coffeemaker to clean faucet connection. Rinse and replace top half of faucet.

Hot water does not last long. Model 82vh40-2 mnf. 05/2005

If the lower heating element burns out the upper element will heat the top part of the tank then shutoff. homw depot/lowes etc should carry elements. 1 turn off breaker, remove element access cover (the 2 panels on the front of the heater) test for electricity at the reset button ( uppermost device in upper panel) to make sure power is off. 2 turn off water (I usually turn off the cold water main to stop water cross feeding into hot supply line back into heater) 3 disconnect the 2 wires on the lower element, test with continuity tester. shhould be no continuity between terminals and tank, but around 10 ohms between the 2 terminals. Check the thermostat for continuity if tank is cold thermostat should be closed ie zero ohms across the 2 terminals.
If stat is bad replace stat; disconnect wires push it up out of the spring clip insert new stat reconnect. If element is bad: drain tank. connect garden hose to tank drain valve, open tank drain valve turn water main on to clear rust sediment and get water flowing. Next remove filter screen from a hot water faucet then turn on ( a hot faucet upstairs or higher than tank drain). Now turn water main off, air will now go in through hot faucet and tank will drain, takes about an hour. Use a water heater element wrench about$10 to remove element(s) make sure no bits of rubber gasket are left in element opening- dig em out with a screwdriver if needed. Insert new element with its gasket and tighten. reconnect wires DO NOT TURN ON ELECTRICITY! BE SURE TO FILL WATER HEATER WITH WATER ! Turn water main back on -air will come out of the hot faucet for several minutes. When water runs without any air sputtering, turn off faucet and replace the faucet filter screen. check element(s) for leaks. turn breaker back on.
