Holding it down.

With the weather getting warmer and the days getting longer it is time to drag the cloud home and start putting in all the parts I got this winter. One of those parts is the fresh water tank. I will be putting it in the same location as the original.

My question is how do you hold it down? Will the tank swell when filled?

I have read about the evils of drinking beer so I quit reading.

In trying to resurrect our old water tank 2 summers ago, when it was out of the trailer, I filled it with water and cleaners. It swelled up a little but not much. The plastic was pretty rigid. I think it depends on how thick and rigid the walls of your particular water tank are. Ours is set under the floor of our trailer on a 1 inch thick piece of plywood (the original), and between the floor, plywood base, and the 4 frame pieces that make up the sides, it doesn't have room to swell up much anyway. Not sure where yours would be placed. Hope this helps in some way.
