I have a 2009 22FB with only one tank but I have two overflow tubes. I never did understand why.

When we were getting our initial walk through by the dealer, his comment was; 2 drain spigots and 2 overflow tubes mean faster fill and draining. Sure does take awhile when you're dealing with 80 gallons.

Just got home, after travelling with Full tanks, and the difference was.....

Can't believe it holds 90 gallons!? But my question is, we had some water come through a couple of tubes pointing down from between the tanks. I know they were not the low point valves, because they are right next to these tubes. Are they some kind of overflow tubes?

I also was wondering why the 22fb has such a big water supply. I looked at some 5th wheels online, and my Friend's 5th wheel holds 50gal??

Why is the 22fb's water tanks so big????

The truck & rv performed no differently than when the tanks are empty. It was actually quite fun watching my friend having to get water into his 5th wheel with a jug, while we still had 2/3 of a tank left.

Gas mileage was no different as well $30. to go 100Km
