Great products! The water tank alone has been my saving grace on at least one occasion.

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!

  • How To Mount The Valterra RV Water Tank On A Trailer
    The Valterra RV Water Tank # R8042 has 6 ports (3 on each side) to allow for different ways to mount your tank. One hole is already cut out with a red plug but the rest would require you to drilling out the hole before attaching your plumbing to the tank. To mount the tank most RV manufacturers just fabricate a bracket to mount the tank to the frame. On the trailers I work on here there's usually a large U-shaped strip of metal around the tank that's simply bolted onto the frame with...

  • How To Attach Fittings To The Valterra RV Water Tank
    The Valterra RV Water Tank # R8042 being solvent weldable simply means that you can glue the fittings onto to the tank using the Valterra ABS Solvent Cement # A05-0303. To install a valve or hose on this tank you would simply need to use the existing opening or pop out a different one to fit your application and use the Solvent to glue it into place in the opening.

  • Can Electric Pump be Used With Valterra RV Water Tank
    An electric water pump should not be used for filling or pulling water out of the Valterra RV Water Tank # R8042, according to the manufacturer. This is designed by the manufacturer as a "low pressure application only." I have added a link to a video review of this tank for you to check out, as well as a link to our entire selection of fresh water tanks, which have a range of 4-1/2 to 36 gallon capacities.

  • Can The Valterra RV Water Tank Be Mounted Horizontally Or Vertically?
    Yes, the Valterra RV Water Tank # R8042 can be mounted vertically or horizontally. Additionally, doing this would also make the height 8" tall, like you mention.

  • Replacement Fresh Water Tank For A 2003 Coleman Bayside Pop-Up Camper

If you do have a hand pump setup then I've attached a link to our tank options below as well...

  • How to Pick Out Replacement Water Tank and Axle for Trailer
    To pick out a replacement axle we need three pieces of information. We need the capacity (in your case 3,500), we need the distance from hub face to hub face, and we need the distance from spring seat center to spring seat center. Keep in mind we don't have every axle configuration so you may have to find a local trailer shop to you who can order axles. For example, the part # T3584F-EZ-8974 is a 3,500 lb axle that has a distance of 89 inches from hub face to hub face and 74 inches between...
