Sanitize/Winterize Function?

Does the sanitize winterize function in my convenience center suck fluid into the FW tank or just the lines. For Sanitize Id like it to go to the tank but for winterize Id like it to just do the lines. Any ideas. Thanks Click image for larger version

Interesting have not seen a switch selection for sanitize. In general think most of us use clorox to sanitize the fresh water tank and then pump that solution through the lines, then follow that with a clean water flush.

Winterize section pulls antifreeze from the bottle into the lines and not the fresh water tank

Any idea on the dry camping position of the switch? Would it be to suck water into the tank?

Looking at the picture:
City is pressurized water source to the plumbing
Tank is to fill the fresh tank
Dry camping is using the water pump to pressurize the plumbing

The Alpine rep just sent me the pdf about the valve. You are correct on how it works. My next question is how do I get a sanitizing solution into the tank? Sanitize/winterize pumps into the lines but not the tank. Any ideas?

Fill the hose with the desired amount of Clorox, attach it to the city water connection, turn on the water and select "fill tank" on the selector valve.... That will push the Clorox into the tank.

JRTH, thanks. That is a good idea. Some times the obvious escapes me. That is why I love this Forum. Thanks for the help.

Wear old clothes when you go playing with the bleach bottle. Seems like that stuff just targets your favorite shirt and jeans.

I have a hose about 4 long to use with the sanitize or winterize selection. Under sanitize I mix the bleach solution in a 5 gallon fresh water can, put the hose in and the pump pulls the water out of the can into the tanks. Works the same way when camping and I run out of water, hose into the can with fresh water and it sucks it into the tank.

From the info I received on the valve I didnt think the sanitize winterize function pulled into the tank. Just the lines.
