2017 Coachmen 192RBS Fresh Water Tank?

I have another question about our new camper. I replaced the simple screw in plug for the fresh water drain with a petcock to simplify draining after trips. ( I like to keep a 1/2 tank of so for those times it may be needed on the road.)

It appears the position of the drain plug will not allow complete draining of the tank. The tank is not flat on the bottom, it has an outward curved bottom and in the middle of the tank there is a recessed rectangular indentation, about 4 or 5 inches square and 2 to 3 inches deep. All the other tanks are flat on the bottom.

The drain plug is not located at the lowest point of the tank.

This might be designed this way to provide more capacity. This one is supposed to be 39 gal.

Can someone verify if their fresh water tank on this model is flat or curved bottom?

A side note, from looking at it, it might benefit from some additional straps for support. Any suggestions as to what to use? Maybe heavy nylon type straps, I thought metal straps would eventually wear on the tank.
