Fresh water tank support brackets


Ours is 2016FC23D.
During the current trip, we noticed one of the fresh water support brackets was dangling (supported by only one bolt).
I attempted to secure the other end with the same size bolt, but the threaded hole is stripped. I attempted to put a one size larger bolt, but the hole on the bracket and the hole on the belly are too small to accommodate the larger bolt.
I figured having one bracket dangling would be more dangerous than removing it, so I removed it.
Now there are 2 brackets. Looking at the set up down there, I think there used to be 4 brackets. Now only 2 (disturbing).
But I think what support the weight of fresh water tank are the bolts, not the brackets because brackets are supported by bolts.
So what do the brackets do?
The plan is to travel back home with empty tank to reduce the weight and bring it to Colonial to have them address the issue ASAP.
