Are you sure? At 8 lbs/gallon for water, 130 gallons in my class A Georgetown would be 1040 lbs. For a class A rig weighing in at over 17,000 lbs, that's less than 7% of the total weight of the rig. I doubt that would make enough of a difference to keep the rig from tipping over.
A better solution for me would be to park the rig with the rear end facing into the wind. This minimizes the surface for it to push against and any forces from the wind will be along the long axis of the rig. It also protects the windshield from flying debris. This is similar to what boaters do in high wind situations, turn into the wind to decrease wind resistance to prevent capsizing.
