I only put enough fresh water in to use at stops. Even boon docking sites typically have a spigot somewhere with potable water to fill your tanks... I've stayed at state parks and national parks from here to Arizona and never run into a dry location.

I don't believe travel trailers are designed to be towed with liquid in any of the tanks. They are only held up with metal strapping. Water is about 6lbs/gallon and can effect you weight distribution hitch. Class C & A's shouldn't be a problem.

Trailers are rated for specific gross weight. it doesn't matter if that is water, food, clothes or bicycles. Full tanks, depending on where they are located, will affect the WD adjustment. The only other downside is the extra weight that you don't need to waste gas pulling if you know you are going to have water where you are going.

Re: Traveling with full holding tanks

I always travel with the fresh tank at least half full. It good to be able to stop and use your facilities during travel if need be. Also, When I leave a campground I put a few gallons in the black with whatever ice I have left to help in the cleaning of the black tank. I di not notice a difference empty of full. With that said, this experience is with my 2011 x23j which I traded in for a whitehawk 28dsbh. I do not know how it will be with the new TT put am not expecting any diffenet results.

If its a tt ( the first letter meaning travel) then the tanks are made to be full or empty and anywhere in between when traveling. I have had many pull trailers and 5th wheels and always traveled with a full tank of my own water. We went coast to coast last year with approx. 60 gallons of fresh water in the tank (about 3/4 full) and had no problem.

Re: Traveling with full holding tanks

And that is my main concern is not having my own water! My well water tastes great and after being told not to fill up before traveling I am afraid of getting some places with terrible tasting water!
