Welcome to JOF

Please note that you have posted on a year old, in-active thread....., I would suggest starting your own thread with your fresh water capacity question over in the "General Jayco RV Chat" or "Jayco Mods" forum.

I found that the steel straps were installed with self tapping screws and 2 of the 6 had fallen out. I had to jack up the tank so it would drain then had to replace the screws with nuts and bolts. Not an easy task in the middle of a secluded campground. I'm glad I don't travel with full tanks our this may have happened in the middle of a highway.
Had the same thing happen to me this weekend 2 of the shelf tapping screws backed out, didn't notice till we we're almost home luckily the tank didn't fall out on the interstate, mine TT is a 2015 BHW 264.

Were you towing with a full or empty tank

Everything Ive ever been told by other is never tow with a full fresh tank
I fill mine when I get to the campground

So, what do you do if you're not going to a campground but out boondocking somewhere?
