Water tank?

One gallon of water is 8.34lbs. I don't know how big your tank is, but that should help you to calculate the additional weight.

Water weighs 8.34 pounds per gallon.

Number of gallon added times the weight above.

I am not sure either but I will check the book and see how big the tank is. We have never had to fill it until we showed up at a campsite last weekend and the water was turned off(in California and in a drought). We see going again for one night so I was going to fill it before we leave. Last weekend we ended up some lake water into it so we could use the toilet.

It's a Salem Cruise Lite - I think it is a 20 footer.
