My tank does not slide around but I usually keep at least 20 gallons of water in it when traveling. What I did not like was the way the front of the water tank drooped down. Much more noticable in the front than in the rear. I had some 10 gauge steel bent at a 90 degree angle by a metal shop . I added Neoprene rubber to the inside surface that contacts the water tank.. It lined up perfectly with the overhead floor support.

You can see the brace on the left side of the picture

Quick & dirty fix... The access isn't good enough for my hack welding skills. I had some ~1 1/4" steel angle laying around, and grabbed a couple pieces that were long enough to span across the two 2" square tubing beams that hold the tank up. I picked up 4 small (2 1/2" opening) C-clamps, located the tank where I wanted it, and clamped the angles to the top of the support beams, against the sides of the tank. As long as the C-clamps don't work loose, this should work well. Here's a pic, not sure if it will help or not.

BTW, keeping it about 1/3 full of water did not help me. It would still pull the hose off periodically.

Just got home from an 1800 mile trip, and the C-clamps have held up great so far.

When I had my unit back to the FR factory for some other warranty work I mentioned that our FW tank was sliding from side to side.

They put in rubber blocks at either end screwed up into the floor of the trailer.
