Water tank support

We have a 2014 rockwood roo 23ikss. We normally camp with water hookup so don't usually fill the water tank. Dry camping today so filling the water tank and I noticed it looks as though the supports for the water tank are sagging. It is startling to me. It seems if they bent under the weight, that the bolts holding them to the side walls would be pulled away but they are not so making me wonder if this is how they normally are? Any help would be appreciated. If anyone has this trailer and could send a pic of your supports, I would be really thankful.

This is NOT normal but unfortunately is fairly common. You should replace the support with a significantly larger (thicker/wider) piece of angle iron.
You can get angle iron at many large home centers and of course a welding shop or steel supplier.
You can see the outline on your tank where it used to be before you filled the tank and bent the support.
Yes your tank could fall out on the street.
Do replace the brackets asap.

Yes, thank you for replying so quickly. I was momentarily in denial, but clearly it is not right. Draining the tank as we speak and have an appointment to have it fixed.
