23SS fresh water tank

Does anybody else run out of water quickley? We take shower in ours and the water is gone in a day and a half. I think my tank might be only 25 or 30 gal. Anyone know how big the fresh water tank is? I have a 2007 23SS.

Welcome to FRF!

Manufacturer's specs say it's 31 gal which would also include the 6 gal in the water heater.

as was said, 31 gallons which includes 6 gallons in the water heater.

if you don't take Navy showers/water conservation, you can go through your FW easily in a day and a half.

i took my nephew and his girlfriend camping. she had never camped in her life, not even tent camping.
she couldn't understand that there was a limit to the water. the two of them emptied the tank in a day. i had to go to a site that had water hookup. and then she nearly flooded the trailer by washing dishes like she did at home. the shower pan was nearly overflowing becaused she'd filled the gray tank.

for just the two of us, we try and use campground facilities as much as possible. especially for showers.
but the DW has become a pro at taking Navy showers because she'd rather use the trailer's shower. and she knows how to conserve water from our 15 years of popup camping.

by the way, i also have a '07 Roo 23SS.

Yes and I am looking to change the tank to something bigger. The current tank size is 25"x20"x11" and I think I can fit something like 25"x20"x20". Does anyone know if you can add a tank under the camper just like the black and grey tanks?

An additional tank can be added under your camper if you have the room for one and if the frame can support the additional weight. Some plumbing would be involved(fill spout and pump suction).

Check out Plastic-Mart.com

We added an extra OEM fresh water tank under the dinette seat.
