On mine, I can crawl under the trailer, and look at the tanks. They are translucent, and you can see the water level in them. Can you do this with yours?

NO I CAN'T. THE DEALER HAS THE CAMPER NOW. THEY TOOK THE BOTTOM OFF AND LOOKED AT THE TANKS AND SAID THEY WERE FULL. A FLOAT IN THE TANK WAS BROKEN, THEY FIX IT AND THE MONITOR READS FULL NOW. IT IS SUPPOSE TO HAVE A 90 GALLON TANK. DEALER SAYS IT IS A 90 GAL TANK. BY OUR MEASUREMENTS IT ONLY HOLDS 60 GALLONS. WE WENT ON A TRIP LAST WEEKEND AND RAN OUT OF WATER WITH 1 DAY LEFT. LAST YEAR, SAME TRIP, SAME WATER HABITS, DIFFERENT CAMPER w/90 GALLON TANK AND WE BROUGHT WATER HOME. I GUESS MY CONCLUSION IS THAT WE BOUGHT A CAMPER THINKING IT HAD 90 GAL TANK BUT WE GOT SCREWED OUT OF 30 GALLONS OF WATER. I JUST HOPE THAT'S ALL WE GOT SCREWED OUT OF.

LIVE AND LEARN I GUESS. LIKE WE CAN MEASURE ALL THE TANKS ON A CAMPER BEFORE WE BUY. . .

Just a note, All caps is "shouting". Turn caps off. It is also harder to read.

At least you now know that the tank is full. My FR toyhauler has two, about 80 gal. tanks, by my measurements. Having less than you thought sucks. If you bought it new from them, and they said 90, I would pursue the matter!

Sorry about caps. The camper is preowned so we'll just have to live with it for now. It will be hard knowing that we will probably run out of water on most of our trips but everything else about the trip will make up for it, I'm sure.

Thanks again

Forrest River really did a poor job installing these. They say I have 100 gal capacity (50 gal per tank) but I could never get more than 60 gallons on. I dropped the belly cover and had to re work all the plumbing so the tanks would actually fill right up and vent properly.

Thank you for that, and I totally agree. We love the camper but there are a few things that weren't thought through on Forest River's part. We will try your suggestion as soon as we have the time. Camping for us is hot & heavy right now. When we slow down alittle we will look into it. I'm alittle nervous about taking the underbelly off. I just hope we can get everything back the way it is supposed to be. I'm sure we will be fine.
Thanks again,
BETHCH
