Inland RV Black Water Tank

Before you go out and get a replacement black water tank from Inland RV, I want you to know about an experience I just had with Inland RV. I ordered a replacement black water holding tank for my 72 Tradewind. Total was about $450.00. It arrived with no inlet, outlet or vent holes. It was apparently hand made of fiberglas with what looked like a repair, all freshly painted white. I called Inland RV and was told to cut the inlet, outlet and vent myself. I was not about to cut these holes in the tank, let alone try to install threaded flanges in a handmade fiberglas tank. I returned it to Inland RV and aked that my Visa account be credited. After about a month an a half, I emailed Inland RV to see when the credit would be made. I recieved a reply telling me that my account would not be credited and that I could have the tank back if I paid for shipping Their "policy" was not to accept returns after 10 days. I wrote them a note back asking them to reconsider, seeing that I've been a good customer for many years. I think they value their customers! All I want is my money back. I would never consider putting that poorly made reproduction tank on my trailer. I'll let you know what happens.

Rivet Tanks ...

fireflyinva,

Tanks-A-Lot for posting that link to the combination article. It was quite interesting.

C Johnson,

Here is another site you might try to search for a replacement tank and required fittings.

http://www.all-rite.com/products.html

In the restoration of my '65 I intend to consider providing a combination holding tank ... when & if I get back that far ... I started in the front and am slooowly my way to the rear!

PS. There are also some shower pans available on this site for those of you that have to create a new bath.

Black Tank Problem solved

I am having one made from high grade 1/4 " polyethelene right here in town. It will be a bit larger than the old one. They are supplying the fittings. It is pretty much a duplicate of my old one except I extended it in to closet floor 6" to increase the holding capacity. I will post a pic here when it is done.

Hi Chris, that's looks like a nice tank. You'll never regret the extra capacity, and the bottom floor of the closet is useless anyway, might as well fill it with tank!
