Dump any antifreeze out of the tank, blow out the lines fill tank with fresh water run all lines clear including the outside shower.   Empty the tank, add a half cup of bleach, refill.  You should have turned off the valves to the water heater in the fall, now you can put the plug back in tight  open valves and fill it up.  I use bottled water for drinking.

Thank you for the info, My wife and I both bring bottle water to drink. But use campground for showering and washing dishes. I just wasn't sure if I did this correctly and just needed backup from an R-pod owner. Again thanks for the info.

New guy here...thanks Lark for the answer. Questions:
How do I "Dump any antifreeze out of the tank" and how do I "Empty the tank?"

Remove the drain cap.

You really shouldn't have any antifreeze in your holding tank, all R-Pods come with a winterization system that includes a valve and hose for antifreeze take up right from the bottle.
