Just got a recall for fresh water tank 178BHSKX

...anyone else get this, apparently when full, the tank can exit the trailer. I imagine that would be messy. Never been more than half full, but it does bulge.

Anyone had any issues? Anyone had the two straps installed?

Just wondering what I am in for and if anyone knows how long the installation takes?

Most recalls list the amount of time necessary to do the suggested repair. At least the recalls I've seen.

Yes, there have been many reports of the fresh tank falling out on many different models of FR R/Vs and there have been hundreds of posts on how they have been rectified.
