We always travel will full fresh water, just like I always take the generator, even when we plan to have hook ups. Just my anal retentiveness, I think what if there is a water issue at the park, what if there is an electrical problem or we have to overnight somewhere like a truck stop when it is hot. The extra weight really doesn't bother me either.

Always travel with a least half tank of home water just in case.

We have always traveled with full fresh tanks if dry camping. The way I see it is if they put the tank in there, it should hold the water. No issues so far. And we have done this since 2002. Jerry

I had a TT from 2005 to 2012. MH since then.

I always travel full for two reasons:

1. I can not predict when and where I will have a breakdown.

2. Half a tank can slosh around create a higher stress on the sides than a full tank does.

My question is with the water tank full will it really make much of a difference in fuel mileage? TV is 3/4 diesel.

I have never seen a difference in mileage from out last stop to home when we have dumped black and grey and the fw is near empty.
