#1: seek underchassis water tanks

Posted on 2008-03-15 19:57:37 by phlegmatico

I expect to convert a cargo van into a simple RV.

To save space, and to help keep the center-of-gravity low, I seek
underchassis-mountable potable water tanks.

Who makes/sells them?

Try some marine supply catalogs such as West Marine. They make a variety of
different sized water tanks out of polyethylene that could be strapped
beneath the chassis of an RV. Some are flat enough to fit between the frame
rails provided the fuel tank doesn't take up most of the room. You would
want to keep them close to the center of the vehicle and certainly not
behind the rear axle.

Why not make your own to the exact size and shape you want? We made
all our tanks for a bus conversion out of 1/4&quot; ABS plastic sheet Use
food grade (white) for fresh water and regular black for holding
tanks. Cut it on a table saw and glued it together, That was back in
around 1990 and it is still working well.

Pray tell sir, which glue you used for compatibility with potable
water?

It has been so long that I can't recall the exact name, however the
plastic supply house that you purchase the sheet ABS from would have
it available. What you use is a &quot;water type&quot; of cement. I reinforced
all seams and them coated them with a &quot;heavy body clear'&quot; cement as
additional assurance against leaks. As I said in the earlier post, it
has been 18 years and still holding. BTW, I purchased my ABS and
supplies from Interstate Plastics in Sacramento but they are in other
locations/states as well. If you check the yellow pages underplastics,
sheet, etc. you should find suppliers. Another thought. the only
&quot;glue&quot; that comes in contact with the water is the heavy body cement
and it is completely cured and hard so no problems .
