Question for RV Guy,
How are the fresh water tank straps attached to the frame on a 2011 270ret Crusader? I have a neighbor who has a "Open Road" fifth wheel. His water tank was attached to the frame with self taping screws and the tank fell off. I would hope that Prime Time has bolted the 270 ret tank in place.

TV= 2012 F-150 FX4 Supercab
FW= 2011 270ret Crusader
Hitch= Reese Pro Series 16K Hitch

Most of the tank's weight is supported by two cross members that are part of the chassis. These are typical steel angle iron. We provide additional support under the tank by "criss-crossing" 1" steel straps from opposite corners. We do use heavy duty self tapping screws for installation of the straps.
