when Greyhawk water says empty ?

Our new 29 MV Greyhawk has 33 gallon fresh water capacity....when control panel says empty I wonder if there is still a bit left and how much ?...I miss my old A with 70 gallon fresh water...guess I will carry five gallon water jugs on a hitch mount cargo carrier....when we dry camp....

We bring a 6 and a 7 gal water container with us for this reason. Country fill sure is great.

Yes, there is water in there the E is the lowest indicator and it can be anywhere from empty to 1/3 full and still show empty.

The indicator is not precise under the best of circumstances. The cleaner the water in the tank, the more accurate the gauge is. If you are depending on it for drinking water and such, the extra water containers are a prudent solution.

The fresh water tank outlet is on the rear SIDE of the tank. Park the RV nose high and you could actually get more water. The drain for the tank is on the rear bottom of the tank so as to discharge any silt build up that may occur. The tank is located such that it can be seen looking forward through the driver's side rear wheel well.
