We travel with fresh water tank 1/3 full or slightly more (can't trust those gauges). We make "pit" stops about every two hours. Just remember a gallon of water weighs eight pounds so carrying a tankful of 40 gallons would mean your towing an additional 320 pounds!

I thought about that when I was trying to decide if I should let some out or not......the irony of my situation was that even carrying all the extra water, I got the best mileage I've ever seen out of my Ram and this camper.

We did on our last trailer when the fresh water tank was close to the axle. On our new 2701SS it's right at the front; pulling with a full tank you can really feel the weight. So we'll be travelling with a bit in there for bathroom use and will fill up at the park.
