What Tank Is This?

2018 23BHXL. Any idea what tank this is? Fresh water?
Under the kitchen sink and in front of the front tire on the passenger side.

Thanks Mike

White Plastic, Yup that's your fresh water tank.

The other give-a-way is the drain valve. The black and grey tanks use a guillotine valve.

One last question about this. It all looks like sturdy plastic including the plug. Does the plug just screw out? I don't want to break or damage it if it comes out some other way. When low drain plugs open, all fresh water in the holding tank will drain out???? No manual and just wanting to do the right thing. Thanks,
Mike

I do not have your unit, but my experience is that the plug will just unscrew to drain the fresh water tank. When draining my fresh water tank, the water in the lines did not drain unless a faucet valve was open. The other tanks did not drain; they had to be released thru their sewer lines. I think that's pretty standard, but I'm not that familiar with all the different units. Have only had 5 travel trailers.

Curious, what is or isn't holding that tank up?

You may want to replace the plug with one of these:

Or 1/2" quarter turn PVC valve. Stronger and more reliable.

Not sure but it is secure. Nothing on the bottom or sides. Has to be from the top. Seems to be in there pretty good though.

Toured an RPOD factory a couple weeks ago. Was going to write what we saw, but perhaps a FR rep ought to do it. Looked substantial and functional.

Fresh Water and agree,
Install a 1/4 turn valve on the drain. Can obtain the valve from Home Depot and will save you grief in the long run.
