I'm just impressed it is on the truck's roof. That thing had to weigh a ton!

Rhino,
Do you have any issues with the wheels? I have heard of some problems with the front wheels, but was not sure which brand.

I have been reading forum for awhile now, but this is first post. We are the proud owners of a 2016 2504S. Love it. I have been wondering if it would be possible to use the fresh water tank as an extra gray water tank. We have never used the fresh water tank ever and think we could live without it. Anyone think this might work??
Just wondering.

I have a Barker and Thetford brand. I have heard of issued with both. I have never had issues with them but I also do not tow it behind the truck to the dump. WHen I have heard of issues it was when it was being pulled. You need to go SLOW! or it will be BAD!

Would it be possible? Sure. I would not ever say never though.. Once you put gray in it you can never go back.. It will also need some serious re plumbing to make it all work. Welcome and congrats BTW!

If you did all the work re plumbing it, the resale value would drop.
In 12 years on various RV forums, I have never seen anyone do such a modification.

Not when buying a rolling tote tank is so much easier and cheaper.

Yeah, trade in would blow. You'd never be able to go back and so they may not even take the trade unless you paid them to take it! LOL

I have one of those collapsible bladders from CW. I don't think I would ever put it on the roof of my dually. I put it in the back between the 5th wheel & Tgate. I also lay a furniture blanket under it for protection against punctures. We boondock a lot so having that 50 gal one and another 50 gal one that goes in front of the 5th wheel is ideal. It is a hard container. I have another 50 gal one that replaces the hard one and is not the same as the one from CW. It does collapse into a neat package and comes with a 12V pump.
