travel with fresh water in tank

I am going to be dry camping for the first time this weekend. Can I travel with water in fresh water tank? Weight will still be under gross max.

Of course! Fill-R-Up!!!!

(Unless, of course, you know that there's a filling/dumping station where you're going and don't mind stopping, and possibly waiting in line, to fill it up...personally, I fill up at the house because I know my water is good.)

Depends... on how far I'm going. When I frequent a SP that is 10 mi away yes I fill up at home. If I'm driving an hour and a half away or more, maybe I'll hold 10 gal in the tank. But if I'm getting a full hook up site, then no.

We always travel with a full fresh tank and haven't noticed a mpg penalty. Besides, we love stopping where we want and having plenty of water for toilet, dishes and even a shower.

Usually always leave home with a full tank of fresh water - didn't the last time out. We went to a park that we had never been too before & you guessed it the water was very poor quality. Won't make that mistake this week.
