I would agree with mcfarmall once you have see how the tanks are installed you would not fill them. Having said that many do it and are ok. I don't take the chance or want the extra weight.

It is fine to travel with a full tank. That is what they are made for, and are designed to do it. 95% of my camping is boondocking, so I have to carry a full tank. It's never been a problem. Do a search on all the different RV forums and see how many people have had a problem caused by a full tank. Good luck, because you won't find many actual problems from it. Just lots of people who are afraid and don't think you should, with nothing to back up those fears. There is a lot of engineering that goes into the size and placement of these tanks, as well as how they are mounted. Fill it up and fear not.

Sometimes when we head out for the weekend, we don't always know where we'll end up. Most cg's in my area are first come first serve. So I fill the tank in case we end up in a site that does not have water. I have 80 gallons of fresh water. I notice a difference when towing, but i think they are designed to carry the weight.

If i don't need the water, i drain it before the ride home.
