Frequently Asked Questions

1)                  What is the tank capacity on my RV ?

 
The tank capacity varies on different makes and models depending on size and how many people it sleeps. There are typically 3 tanks in most RV's there is the fresh water tank which holds all your fresh water used for the sink and the shower. There is your gray water tank which holds used water form the shower and sink. Then there is the black tank which holds excrement from the toilet. In some cases there is an extra gray water tank on bigger units called   the galley. Typically the the combined total of the gray and black tank will exceed the fresh tank so you will not over flow your tanks.
