We are full time in our RV and the fresh water tank was being used in place of the supply hose which froze up. I was not aware the fresh water tank was not receiving enough heat since it is forward of the last heated bay from the steps to the generator.

Anyway, what is done is done and nothing can happen to repair/replace it until it gets warmer. Once it warms up, I can hook up the hose again and try to look at the damage.

My thanks to schlep1967 for the info on replacement tanks. I have started an insurance report and will await their help with the solution.

Just another hiccup. Arnold


Look on the bright side. Now you have a Chassis wash system. [emoticon]

An R V Tech came out and discovered there were two forty-five gallon tanks but only one was damaged so he pulled out the damaged tank and replumed the undamaged tank to supply water to the Bus. The damaged tank blew apart and split almost a third of the way down the top. Now I have one 45 gal of fresh water on board instead of 90. That should work fine.

2 1500 watt heaters would have probably boiled the water in the tank. The loud pop was probably steam pleasure relief.

As mentioned previously, this is likely NOT a fiberglass tank but rather a plastic tank and repairing these is nearly impossible. The good news is that an exact replacement should still be available but likely will require a special order.
Keep us up-to-date as the weather warms up and you are able to discover what blew, a tank or a water line. I am sure hoping it's a water line!
