Additional 60 GAL FW tank?

Hey all --

With our Shockwave, on the "Optional Equipment Installed by Manufacture" there was a line item for "19-070-3 Additional 60 Gal FW Tank".

My question is.. Do they just put in a larger thank thats 60 gallons bigger or is there literally a 60 gallon tank in addition to the standard tank? I suppose I could just go look flop down on the ground but the storage facility is not the closest to me so I figured someone might know.

Thanks,

-Allistah

Most likely it's one fw tank equal to 60 gallons.
so if it's factory 35 gallon with an option of a 60 .
Sounds like they just put in a 60 .

The standard FW tank size is 106 gallons so I would think it would be 166 gallons if it's an "additional 60 gallon FW tank".

Am I thinking right on this?

Here is from the flyer - not sure what to make of that - probably a call to the factory Customer Service to clarify...

Yeah, excatly. I would think there would be a 106 gallon and a 60 gallon. Or there would be one 166 gallon tank. <shrug> Maybe I'll call and ask.

I would love 166 gallons of FW, that makes Provincial Parks last a week for us.

I called the customer service line and it went to a voice mailbox. I'll try again tomorrow in hopes of getting a live person on the line.

I went to the trailer and does indeed have two tanks - a 106 gallon and a 60 gallon that are both connected with a large line so water can move freely between the two tanks. Interesting...

Yup, that's a lot of water and a lot of weight.
