Question 1

I hope you can help me with a problem regarding the size and capacity of the holding tanks on my 2012 Palomino Sabre RCTS-6. My gray water holding tank #2 developed a leak (crack) recently near where the drain fitting enters the tank on the side. The RV repair shop is ordering a replacement tank with the dimensions of 63x24x7 with a capacity of 32 gallons as stated on the work order. The original tank has an Ameri-Kart part #HT292, which the shop used to order from. My Sabre brochure states that all the tanks (4) are 42 gallons. They told me that the capacity is determined by using 231 cubic inches per gallon which would make the above dimensions equal just over 45 gallons. Is this something I should be concerned about?

Question 2

This tank was apparently leaking for some time as there was a lot of water trapped above the belly skin. Would it make sense to drill some small holes in the belly skin to allow for drainage if this was to occur again with any of the other tanks because it appears that the belly skin has been stretched out from the weight of the water?

Question 3

Also, can you tell me what drains into each of the gray water tanks?
The best I can figure out is:
Gray Tank #1 - Bathroom sink, shower, washer
Gray tank #2 - Kitchen sink

Sorry for asking so much but you have helped me in the past.
And as always, thank you for your time and knowledge.
Dear Owner,
#1 I have PMed you the phone number for our warranty department. You can have your dealer contact us to compare the measurements we show for the original tank.
#2 drilling holes would allow cold air to enter and the heat we are pumping into that area to escape. I would also worry about bugs and small animals entering in your drill holes.
#3 you are correct.

I hope that helps.

SabreSam --

My dh and I are currently researching 5th wheel RVs. We are looking at something that we can live in and that would do well in KS winters for a few years before we are able to travel fulltime with out 3 young children.

We really like the Sabre 36qbok model, but we are not sure if the R 28 factor insulation will be enough. Is there additional insulation that can be added to increase the R factor for this model in the roof and floor?

Are the slide outs insulated?

Also, is there an option for adding heat pads to the holding tanks?

I appreciate any help or info you can give us.

SabreSam,

It seems the black tank roof vent is blocked or the vent pipe sank into the tank. When flushing there are bubbles coming up into the toilet and a bit of an odor we didn't have before. My question is, there are 2 vent caps side by side on our Sabre 34-REQS-6 roof. Do you know which one is for the black tank, the one on the street side or curb side?

Thanks,
Wiscampsin
