Good to hear! Did you take notes so you know how it is wired for future reference?
Happy travels

I can tell you that on my '74, the grey tank is 10 gallons, and the fresh water is about 25 gallons.

I can't swear to it, but everything else I have seen in the '75 Sovs is ident-ee-wockle to my '74.

You will notice that the grey tank is small. 1974 was the first year for grey tanks on most AS models. Therefore people with '73 models were jealous, while people with later models just laughed at it.

According to Airstream 45 gals fresh water and about one week capacity waste tanks. I'm not kidding that's what is listed in the specs for 75's.

Auxillary = grey water(sinks and shower) Main = black (toilet) Yes you should have three tanks, fresh, grey and black.

If you go to BM, change the tanks out for something a lot bigger, or park close to a "comfort station"...

I've been looking for tank specs, Chris. Where did you find that?

Airstream's site under service page a section for vintage specs etc. Looked at 70's models then 75's and found page listing specs.

OK, so assuming we can believe the "standard specs" there IS a difference: my '74 has 30 gallons of fresh while the '75 has 45.

I KNOW that the black tanks are the same (for rear bath models, at least), since I bought one. Which I never used, but that's another story.

Now I'm wondering if they stuck with the same dinky grey tank both years!

You can see a drawing of what the grey tank on mine looks like here:

Waste tanks sizes will be different from rear to center bath models. I'm not sure how they determine approx. one week capacity. That would depend on how much you shower and how much you.... well you know.

My '74 rear bath Argosy has a 12 gallon black water tank; but it sets above the floor in the bath. The grey water is 10 gallons and it is below the floor. The potable water tank is 30 gallons and sets across the front of the trailer.
The dump valve for the black water is inside the storage compartment behind the bumper. The valve for the grey water is inside the left frame rail just forward of the bumper.

The schematic is great. However we have a center bath but we have a much better understanding.

So I brought the original propane tanks in to get filled and the valves need replacing so says earl the propane guy. The tanks appear to be ok looking should i just do the valves?

Are the original tanks good after all these years?

Team tanks last forever. To have them recertified that's all that needs to be done, replace the valves. When they do that they should sandblast and paint the tanks. They will pressure test them and recertify them for another 10 yrs.
