This was a fast easy Transaction with E-trailer and I use them for just about all my parts for the RV.

The installation was super easy.

This Tank fits quite a few different Models.

When You get it you will need to drill out the already marked holes for your specific needs.

I set my old cracked tank next to this one and just copied what I had with the new replacement tank.

A little bit of plastic glue, which they sell the kit for that too.

Let the new tank dry over night and install in the reverse order you removed it.

Reconnect the lines and your done.

It just does not get any easier then this folks.



by:

The first one I ordered split down the middle upon filling it up and it flooded my van. I probably over pressurized it. It was out of warranty. Because of the size restriction I ordered another one which has been working okay since.



by:

The tank is installed in our Transit van and fits quite well on top of the rest wheel well. I wish it had come with better instructions on the size of threaded that fit and how to open the holes.

Exactly what I expected

  • What Tool Should Be Used To Knock Out An Inlet/Outlet Hole In A Valterra RV Water Tank
    You can use a hole punch from your local hardware store to knock out the cap of any of the Valterra RV Water Tanks # R8048.

  • Can Valterra RV Water Tank # R8048 Be used Laying Flat
    The Valterra RV Water Tank # R8048 could be used on it's side in the orientation that would put it at being 8 inches tall. I pointed out two of the fittings that can be used when laying down in this orientation. You'd just need to punch out the cover for the fitting and you'd see the 3/8 inch fitting there. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Can the Valterra RV Water Tank # R8066 be Installed So That it is Taller or Shorter
    The Valterra RV Water Tank # R8048 can be installed standing up for laying down as is demonstrated in the 2 attached photos. If you have it oriented so that it sits taller the drain plug will already be in a position to drain properly. Should you choose to mount it so that it has a lower profile you will simply need to use one of the pre-drilled holes as a drain. If you finish drilling them through to the tank you will be able to use them as a drain as you can see in the attached picture...

  • Availability Of A Fresh Water Tank For A 2017 R-Pod Model 178
    According to the online owners manual, a 2017 R-Pod 178 has a single, 36 gallon fresh water holding tank. Unfortunately we do not carry a tank this large. The largest fresh water tank we offer is a 24 gallon # R8048 and measures 48" x 8" x 16".

  • Why Cant The Valterra R8048 Be Used With An Electric Water Pump
    Because the Valterra RV Water Tank # R8048 is a lightweight tank that is baffled for surge control, it is not designed for use with electric water pumps. It would void the warranty if used this way and is why they specifically note on their site: "Not for use with electric pumps, low pressure applications only" Included is our review video for additional informaiton on this product.

  • Could Valterra RV Water Tank # R8048 be Mounted Vertically
    The only reason mounting the Valterra RV Water Tank # R8048 would be challenging would be the drain hole location. If you could come up with a way for it to be accessed on the bottom of it when vertical this would work just fine. Maybe have a hole cut in the floor so that the line ran to it would go through the floor.

  • Can Sight Glass be Added to Valterra 24 Gallon Water Tank
    I don't see any reason why you can't add a sight glass to the 24-gallon Valterra RV Water Tank # R8048. These aren't something we offer or have experience with in regards to installation, so you may need to find a way to fabricate or otherwise install one but you can do so if you like. We do not recommend putting a larger fill port in the RV Water Tank # R8048 but you can add a fill kit to make it easier with the Valterra ABS Tank Fill Kit with Threaded Cap # RK909 or Valterra ABS Tank...
