We have a 67 Internationial which the PO had installed a new black tank. There is no galvanized pan. Maybe the PO did not re-install one or maybe the 67 airstream does not need one? What is the purpose of the galvanized pan?

Beth, if the tank is under the floor, it does two things:
1- It helps protect the tank from foreign intrusion (read getting smashed by roacks and stuff that might make it through your belly pan)>
2- Many coaches that have under-floor holding tanks have insulation inside the galvanized pan, with a heater duct from the furnace to keep the contents from freezing. I think this is more important, as I have never cared for frozen poo-sicles.

Blue tank

The only trouble with using your blue tank as a black tank is if you don't open the small cap to let the air out it will pressurize itself very fast, if you leave the small cap open for a vent that is where you will get the smell and making the person camped next to you mad, expecially while they are outside at their picnic table.

Tanks available

Macman:

We have both the 10-gallon BLACK and the 12 gal GREY (complete with itís galvanized pan) left over from the ongoing re-build of our 1976 Argosy 24.

The Argosy, including these tanks, was in perfect shape. Nonetheless, we are re-newing everything: new electric, plumbing, 14 and 36 gallon holding tanks, etc. etc.

Only the frame and iconic aluminum shell will be original in the end.

If these tanks look like they could be of use to you, send me your measurements and we can check them against the Argosy originals.
