    2014 23D International Fresh Water Tank Replacement

    Two options I can think of right off the top would be either to use larger bolts and retap the holes or drill out and use Rivnuts to give you new threads.

    2014 23D International Fresh Water Tank Replacement

    Too much pressure caused our 55 gallon tank to expand. This in turn deformed the tank pan but there is no leaking. When I inspected the situation I noticed that some of the bolts were over tightened by Airstream and the threads are stripped.

    So what to do? The tank sags about two to three inches when full. I made a steel bracket to help with the sag but I'm not too happy with the Airstream stripped threads, what do you think?
