Video Transcript for Valterra RV Fresh Water - Water Tank - R8042 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Valterra 21-gallon RV water tank. This tank features a lightweight ABS plastic construction. It's completely non-toxic and rust-free. The black ABS plastic will not allow algae to grow, keeping water fresh and free from taste problems. This is a one-piece extruded construction, so that eliminates the possibility of leakage. It's baffled every 18 inches for surge control, and it's a universal design that makes the unit easy to install. Because ABS tanks are solvent weldable, fill fittings can be added anywhere on the tank. Located on each end are going to be three three-eighth inch threaded fitting inserts. Now, one out of the six has a red cap.

This fitting goes all the way into the tank. The others have a stop at the back of it. The tank measures 42 inches long, by 8 inches wide, by 16 inches tall. Capacity is 21 gallons. Please keep in mind that this is a non-pressure ABS tank, so it must be vented when filling, and the tank must be properly sanitized before filling. Sanitizing instructions are included. That's going to do it for today's look at the Valterra 21-gallon RV water tank.Speaker 2: inaudible 00:01:15.

I installed this tank in my Sprinter van RV conversion project. It has functioned very well, and is well made. I have it tucked into the back of a floor height cabinet, and is hooked up to a to a pump and my sink. I took a bit to get around to installing it after I bought it, but I have been using it for months and it is great!
