Water Tank - Flagstaff MicroLite

I was conducting my due diligence prepping for an upcoming trip, and when I got under the camper, I noticed one of the water tank supports was bent. I boondock on occasions and fill the water tank before I go, and I'm hoping that's not what caused the issue. I believe I've read elsewhere in this forum that there was a debate relative to hauling with the water tank filled as some campers indicated that their tanks fell out. I really hope this is not the case because it defeats the purpose of having a water tank at all. Be interested if anyone else has had this issue and how they've dealt with it. Thanks.

Lots of folks with Lite or Micro trailers have had this issue.

Search water tank fell out and you'll get lots of reading.

You'll need to have those braces beefed up.

And yes, having a trailer that you can't fill the water tank and travel is useless.
