I'd be pi$$ed! Absolutely no call for that sort of failure.

Know the feeling. Had my 264 less than six months. First time i traved w/full tank of water. I can't believe the corr. plastic held the tank up. All of the self tapping screws are rusted. I am afraid the same may happen to the othe tanks if full when traveling. I guess i will take the under belly off and replace all the sf tapping srcews. Good luck.

Very weak desing to hold these heavy tanks when full. The metal straps that are installed between the 2 angle iron tracks to hold the tanks are very flimsy and for me if I have to travel with a full tank of water I will certainly modify this weak set up. Imagine if you loose your tank while on the highway full of water. What can happen to the vehicle that is following you?
