I'm thinking the full tank weighed the support down. When the tank was drained the tank returned to shape but support member stayed bowed. Should be a. dimple fix for dealer. HMO.

water tank support bracket

we bought a 2014 flagstaff fbrs21 brand new a couple months ago. It also has a buckled support. We have yet to use this trailer,I thought i could take a jack and try to bend it before i filled it with water which I did but when i filled it with water (this was the first fill) it bent right back. mine came from the factory like this, very disappointed with Forest River, seems to me they take to many shortcuts these supports should be heavier gauge metal.

I bought my 2109s on 11 of April this year, was going to go to Branson mo. Next week, while loading and getting it ready. Looked under and saw fresh water tank frame was also bent.
Have not used my rv yet, brought home from dealer did pdi and parked it at home. Only water
In tank was at the dealers and than drained before leaving dealer. I think it's a factory defect

I made this mistake two weeks ago. Filled my fresh water tank by putting the hose nozzle in the intake and walked away to let it fill. The pressure blew out the supports, bent the ends and bent the support bars holding the tank up.

I used a jack to straighten the support bars/frame, then straightened the two cross bars. Filled the tank half way today without problems. I don't plan on using it so I'm not that worried.
