Motorhome Holding Tanks Are Important To Your Health And Comfort


Motorhome holding tanks are extremely important to the comfort and enjoyment of yourself and your family as you travel in your RV or travel trailer. This is the tank that holds your waste water from your kitchen and bathroom. Motorhome drivers learn to spot dumping sites to empty their tanks regularly. This system only works, however, when the tank is in excellent repair. If your holding tank is in need of repair or replacement, this is not something that you should put off taking care of.

One of the top suppliers of RV accessories and parts, pellandent.com, offers a variety of holding tanks so they can meet your needs, whether you drive a Fleetwood or a Holiday Rambler. A 13-gallon holding tank, measuring 11 ¾ inches wide, 36 ½ inches long, and 9 inches deep sells for $253.68. This is a durable modern polyethylene tank that is rust and weather resistant.

At tank-depot.com, you will find a variety of holding tanks like the Ronco 10-Gallon RV Holding Tank. This tank is designed to be installed as an aftermarket replacement or a supplementary tank on your camper.

Polyethylene is the current FDA approved material for holding tanks. It is durable, weather resistant, and reliably contains odors and bacteria until you are ready to empty it.
