Here are some reference for you for sanitizing: 1 tablespoon per 1 gallon.

1 tablespoon = 0.5 oz.

So for my 22 gallon fresh tank, I need 11 ounces of bleach.

1976 AS has drop down door for water fill so very easy to fill and add bleach. I measure bleach in measuring cup, pour in imed. put hose in to flush down and fill tank. I don't mix water and bleach. I have done this way for yrs. no bottles or funnels

Why not sanitize the hoses at the same time?
I connect all of my water hoses together then flush them with fresh water.
Then I disconnect from the hose bib and drain the hose onto the ground, not into the tank.
Then I put one end into the tank filler tube, then pour in the appropriate quantity of bleach into the hose just before connecting it to the hose bib. Full strength bleach goes through the hose as it goes toward the tank.
I've been doing it this way for 20+years.

Why not pour strait bleach into tank and have hose turned on to imed. fill with water? I have done this way for 39 yrs. w/out any prob. or harm.Only dif. is 1976 AS has drop down door so no delay hooking up hose. Bleach won't harm out side if spilled as I mix 1/2 bleach 1/2 water in spray bottle to spray mold that grows panels upper and lower belt line on rear and rear sides then wash trailer. Bill

Question - I like the idea of putting bleach directly in the hose except I would think you would have to remove the in line H2O filter 1st & then put back on before going into FW tank?

Straight, undiluted, bleach might damage your hose, and certainly your water filter.

Dropping a bleach tablet or two in thru the fresh water fill works great.

No muss, no fuss.
