The conclusion I came to was my tank issue was a combination of two things. First off the Lippert (LCI) supplied tank support frame is not strong enough to support the tank. On our 2017 by dimensions we have a 39 gallon tank. When the supports bent it was only 3/4 full or 250 lbs or so. I do not think it would of came all the way out, but you never know. LCI made that support frame out of 1/8" thick plate bent into an angle and I don't know where they buy their steel, but it's some soft stuff. I left it at my sons thinking he might have been able to use it for something on his race cars, but he tossed it in the scrap pile when he noticed how soft it was. Secondly Rockwood used a cheap water tank with some unusually thin walls. The thing really balloons out. They had it jammed up tight to the underside of the floor and that along with only two light cross supports added to the issue. The tank I added made by Alpha systems is much more substantial, does not balloon out anywhere near as much as the stock one Rockwood used, and appears to have walls twice as thick.



Tube is not an option on the Roo, we do not have the frame height and using tube the tank would be too low to the ground. Nothing wrong with angles it just needs to be the right type. They used thin plate bent into an angle. Rolled angles are inherently stronger.

This describes exactly the problem I and many others had also. Very light plastic distorts to the point I'm worried about it rupturing or worse, pushing the floor loose as I can hear strange noises in the floor when I fill it. The metal is less than 1/8" thick.

Flints problem is lead, not feces. There's a reason many wise men only drink vodka... or beer.

Even the water used in vodka and beer had once floated a turd or two.
