Uh, oh. I hope this isn't going to become a regular thing.

Fresh water tank fell out???

Mine didn't fall out but it made the attempt!
I found it chasing down a black tank valve cable problem. I never tow with more than 10 gallons of fresh water but I DID fill it to sanitize it. Since I was going to Goshen, I didn't take it to my dealership. I contacted FR's Wildcat warranty manager who told me how to shore it up for my trip to Goshen. When the Goshenites saw my fix (last pic), techs and their management said my fix beat what they would do. My patch remains!

It's empty enough that I started to do that, but I was a little afraid of voiding a warranty. The support bracket is bent all to heck, I don't know if that's from the fall, or the cause of it. It sheared the screws from the frame... Little bitty suckers.

In my case, the weight of the water caused the bottom of the tank to sag/bulge which made the tank narrower which allowed it to slip between the tiny ledges of the cross braces.
