CorPlast Underbelly

Has anyone attempted to remove the CorPlast material from under their TT or RV. I'm considering adding another fresh water tank and I'm not real excited about removing the underbelly panels just to see if I can squeeze in another tank. I intend on putting it back when I'm done. I have read other posts about put a "tin roof" under there.

Anyone have any tips to tricks or thoughts in the matter?

its just held on by screws and turn bar . Its really not that difficult .

keep in mind you may be over your hitch weight or your tt overall weight by installing another fw tank and hauling trailer with both tanks full .
two 30 lb tanks is 480 lbs when full .

Good thought. I normally travel with little to no water to CG. Fill at CG. Just run out a little quick with 4 to 6 adults. My 43 gal tank seem to go quick. I figure I only need about another 20 and still keep in good shape with the 38 gal gray and black tanks.

And I always thought 2 x 30 = 60. Must be modern math to get 480.

I think Mike's idea would be a much better way to go. Far less work as well as you have no additional plumbing to do, just get a transfer pump to speed up moving water to the trailer.

Not sure what floor plan this unit is, but it should give you a bit of an idea where stuff is in the belly.

There are almost no water lines accessible from below (just the sewer lines) in my camper (a 5th wheel). The water system is entirely behind the kitchen cabinets and in the overhead of the "basement".
