Where are the tanks located on a 242BHSW

So I dialed in my WD hitch prior to our first trip. Initial front axel height was right back to the stock height. Once I was loaded with all the goods and ready to pull out I rechecked the front axel height and it was up a quarter inch. Nothing to freak out about but I'm picky like that and want to get it back to stock.

I haven't loaded the rear storage yet and we are planning to add a bike rack to the rear receiver so that will shift some ballast.

I figured I better know where the tanks are to know how that will change the location of weight.

ASTMedic,

Welcome to JOF

Normally the black is close to (or under) the toilet, and the fresh tank(s) close to the outside fill location. The grey location can be a mystery at times but tends to be close to the bathroom.

A call to Jayco with your VIN handy can conform actual locations.

I found my tank locations (in relation to the axles) by removing the manual slide access panel under the TT and took a peek.

Surely ASTMedic isn't travelling with a full black tank? Not even the weight issue. Just that it would be bad to do that I think. Not sure how the tank even affects your hitch and trailer ride.

No but if I'm hauling just shy of 700lbs of fresh I'm wondering where that rides in relation to my axles since forward or rear of them will change the weight distribution on my trailer. Black is not an issue but I'm fine with knowing where they sit.

Your correct, and possibly the tongue weight.

My fresh water tanks are forward of the axles and when full (approx. 700lbs) add approx. 100lbs to my loaded tongue weight.
