Just went through your problem myself. Trailer sat for 2+ years. All the water stank for several fills. The fresh water stopped foaming after running a couple tanks of water through it. The hot water took quite a bit longer. Went through about 15 filter cleanings and drained the hot water tank. Used the chlorine method, tried about 9 gallons of vinegar on one occasion (in an empty tank) and finally used the sanitation system from Thetford. Finally, finally the smell was gone and the foam was gone and the crud in the filter was gone. Nirvana. Nope. Used some iron, sulfur water at a campground so now I have a hot water heater full of smell again. Oh well. Life goes on. Drank a lot of bottled water and showered at the parks (except the sulfur springs), Now I need a quiet pump. Any suggestions??
