Fluid capacities?

I would love to know the official capacities of our trailer - I have a ballpark feel, but we're extending our range, and I am a man of numbers! Any help appreciated!
Model: 2002 Salem 30BHSS

Thanks!
Joe

Moved to Salem forum, hopefully you will get more help here.

One thing I will never understand. People want to know what their holding tank capacities are. They are usually the same, or only 1o gallons more than the fresh water tank.

Since you have no way of measuring the water from the sink, the shower, or anything else, what does it matter? If you are boon docking, and a have a full fresh water tank, and water heater full, there is no way to fill both holding tanks.

Now if you are looking to purchase a blue boy, sewage tote, I understand the question.

Thanks for shifting this over! My thought was, when hooked up to city water, not when on the fresh water tank.

Thanks again!

Been camping at more campgrounds now with water and electric; but no sewer. I feel your pain. I did look around but no luck tracking down your numbers yet. (I assume no documentation for your camper came with it right?)

Nope- I went through all the docs, and only generic info is provided. Ill crawl under and take a look again, but at first glance, I didn't see any specs.

I was able to contact the factory (flagstaff/rockwood) and they looked up my info on the build sheet. might be worth a shot if you can get a name and number. FWIW - I think its important to know the capacities

RVWeb doesn't have specs for the 2002 but it does for the 2004. you might compare the 2004 floorplan to yours to see how close. the manufacturers usually don't change the specs much unless they change the floorplan.
