I have followed this and other post about the falling water tank so I knew it was only a matter of time before it will happen to me. I have a 2016 23ss roo and its not a year old. WE used it last year but all the campgrounds had water hook up and when we filled the water tank to sanitize it no problem BUT I know it was only a mater of time for I had seen how the water tank was held in. Well this past weekend we went to Punderson state park in Newbury Ohio for the weekend and we always use full hookup's but the park is being upgraded so we were moved to a site that had only 20amp electric so I filled the water tank up at the water station at the park. We only had to drive less the a 1/4 mile to our site and back in . I set up and was all done so I thought I would take a peek and well we all know what I was looking at and will it last till the tank was empty was my next worry. So today I am off to the dealer to have it fixed and when I called on Monday the lady who answered the phone was shocked that something like that would happen. I told her that in forest river forms their are dozens of complaints about this problem and after telling her of all of the Rockwood Roos they have sold don't tell me I have the only one. So with that she said bring it on in and we will get it fixed so we will see how long this takes and if I post here the dealers name if its a good dealer or bad one , To be contended

I have to wonder why is there are never recalls on RV stuff like this ???
Maybe they are waiting for one to fall out on the HWY and kill someone ???

Can you imagine the pandemonium at the dealers? None of them can handle the everyday service work they get anyway. Imagine if the manufacturers issued recalls -- there would be thousands of RVs on dealer's lots waiting for months for service. I think the manufacturers just blow it off and count on dealers to take care of their problems on a case-by-case basis.

I am sure you are right !!!
But what about the legal battle that could happen ???
Could you imagine a 30 or 40 car pile up on a Freeway or Interstate ???

So is this a known Roo issue? We have a 2016 21SS and camp at state parks all the time, so use the tank frequently. I usually check the tank as it is filling and everything looks okay. Maybe I should crawl under there and give it a good going over.

I think it not just a Roo issue,,, maybe A FR issue ???
If you plan to crawl under your unit,,, you might want to make sure the tank is empty !!!

It's easier to notice on a Roo because the under belly is not enclosed. Its a Lippert (LCI) issue as they make the frames and the tank supports. The way I see it since FR and other manufacturers continue to use LCI they (the manufacturers) are ultimately the ones responsible. It doesn't just happen here, go to other manufacturer specific forums.

That being said. If you want a water tank that you can fill and not worry about, I suggest buying some steel and breaking out your welder. Be advised you'll potentially void the LCI frame warranty on the frame they built, that will not hold the tank to begin with. And wear one of these when you crawl under.
