Styrofoam Spacers

First time under the new TT. There are blocks of untreated styrofoam between the gray and black tanks and the floor. One already slipped out. Does anybody know if this used only in the installation of the tanks or supposed to be permanent spacers? The tanks do not appear to be fastened at the top of the supports so when empty could bounce without the spacer. ? Thanks

Same thing on my TT. The blocks were attached with some sort of adhesive that did not hold. Dealer sort of fixed it under warranty so I don't expect the blocks to stay attached. No one seemed to be able to tell me if the blocks were necessary.

Looks like they're there to ensure that any flex in the floor is transmitted to the top of the tank to prevent stressing the possibly cracking the connecting piping connection at either the floor or the tank. So, I'd have to say that they should be permanent. I think I'd put something with a little more meat to it in there and attach it with some substantial adhesive.
