Fresh water tank question.

I have a question for those of you who may have accessed your freah water tank at some time. I am doing some repairs/maintenance to our 8281SS and removed the Coroplast underbelly. Once removed I found the fresh water tank is on a wood board which is placed between the cross braces attached to the frame. The water tank and board are not secured to anything and the board had shifted to the left side of the trailer and the water tank had shifted to the right side. The hose for the tank drain was stretched tight and apparently all that was holding the tank from continuing to migrate to the right side of the trailer.

Is this normal? Are they all just sitting there loose? We frequently boondoack and drive on washboard and uneven surface dirt roads and I am concerned about this problem continuing and/or getting worse.

The fresh water tank is at the rear of the trailer. My 3 holding tanks are forward of the axles. I have not removed the Coroplast forward of the axles yet to see what awaits me there.
