Fresh Water Drain Broke

Just arrived at campground and setting up. Since we’re only here for one night thought I was prepared as I had filled the fresh tank before we hit the road - good to go. To my surprise the pump just ran and ran - no water? Looked under the water bay and found that the drain line broken. Seems that somewhere along the bumpy Michigan highways there was enough rough spots. Guess I have a new project!

Interesting -I travel with my 50 gallon fresh water tank full. It is suspended from the coach floor by a steel strap to allow heat to keep the tank warm in winter. When I went to winterize the coach after a year of traveling (11,000 miles), I found the strap ends bent allowing the tank to fall to the floor. Fortunately the PEX tubing and tank were not damaged. I removed the four self-tapping sheet metal screws and bent the steel strap back into position. Upon, checking the tank after a torturous trip through Louisiana on I- 10 next year, I found the strap bent again and was on the very edge of the tank. One more time I removed the strap and welded reinforcements on each end of the strap. I also ran a length of safety wire from the strap back to the frame to keep it from slipping off the tank. Two years later no more problems It seems the potholes and broken pavement with 415 lbs of water is too much for Thor plant 750 engineering team to plan for.

[I] was there any other damage? I'm surprised that things didn't shift around. even more.

Boy, that's not good. Can you tell what shifted around to cause that?
