i was gonna suggest the website but their archives don't go any earlier than 2002. but for model year 2002 the 40' naples had a 50-gal gray, 50-gal black, a 100-gal fresh. your 2001 is likely very close if not the same.

Not very likely there will be any paper stickers anywhere on an eleven year old RV. Your best bet would probably be to either measure your tanks (if they're in a position that allows it) or measure the inflow until the tank is full.
Good luck / Skip

Oh yeah? I have an 1987 Shasta. Guess where the sticker is and it is 25 years old.

Check inside all of your cabinets and closets. There's usually a "build sheet" pasted on an inside wall or the back of a door somewhere. There's no standard location across manufacturers, but someone else with a Beaver may know where it's likely to be in your brand.

Hi All.

Here is something that will work for you very well. We use ours for several different uses. It also helps us keep track of how many gallons of water we are using before we have to "Regenerate" our "Water Softner" in our Motorhome. Its is Battery Operated, and its also re-setable. Takes the guess work out of any tank size info that you need.

Good Luck. Happy Travels. Dan & Jill

Just a fun thought here.

Who cares how many GALLONS the tanks are. The important measurement is DAYS. And you don't know that until you do some camping.

Oh great, something else I have got to have now for the trailer.


Thanks for the link. It'll be handy for determining when my FW tank is getting close to being full after emptying it.
