Additional FW tank

So here it is, my sales order says I have the 60gl additional tank. So, is there only one fill port? How do the tanks fill? I ask because I can only get 100gls into my tank. I'm trying to figure out if I have a fill issue or an issue of paying for something I didn't get.
Model is 2017 T24RQMX

From what I read there is an equalize tube that connects the two tanks.

So you should have 120 gallon.

Those tubes are low and when you get near fill I believe it takes a bit till the other tank matches the one your filling..

Try to wait a few minutes and try to refill some more.

How do you know you added about 100 gallons? Did you measure?

Your model shows 86 gal water.

Plus 60 should be 146 gallons you should get in there.

Well, it just depends on where you get your data from. Here is from the brochure: (oh, and is listed on my invoice)
STANDARD
• 102” Wide Body Construction • Heated, Insulated, & Enclosed Underbelly
• 106 gal Fresh Water
• 13.5 BTU Ducted Air Conditioner
• Recessed Oven w/ Glass Range Cover
• 30# LP Btls w/ Cover (20# on MX)
• 30,000 BTU Furnace, Ducted Heat Throughout
OPTIONS
• 15k BTU Air Conditioner
• 200W Solar Power & LED Light Pkg
• 1500W “Go Power” Inverter
• Additional 60 gal Fresh Water (NA T18CB, T21RQ) (Mines a T24RQ)
• Electric Pass Through Dinette

So, I should have about 166gl. Now, I don't need that much water as it hurts my weights. But, if I paid for it and don't have it, I want some money back.

Yes, I have a flow meter to measure water I put in. That way I can calculate weights.

Yes I see that on the brochure..

So it says on the sales recipt that its what was ordered with the extra tank?

Sometimes its listed on the sales ticket but says N/A next to it.

If indeed you dont have it and should talk to the dealer or forest river.

They are not keen on giving money back. They will offer you something like they did me. They sent me a $400 back up furrion camera. Its a piece of junk so I sold it on e bay for $250..

Well, I would take anything that was same basic cost.
If someone has the extra tank, other than water qty, what's the easiest way to tell? I have looked underneath I don't see one. If someone has a pic with 2 tanks, "pictures for dummies" works for me.

Same issue I looked at with the Arctic Pkg. I was told if it had the sticker, it had the pkg. So I verified it when I upgraded the vents for maxxairs. It was there.

Lawrosa: What camera did you end up with?
