water weight in metric is super easy. One liter equals one kilogram.

Holding tanks

Not sure why we have holding tanks if you can't travel with them somewhat full.

Some are well supported and some are not, but the intention was to offer a means of using an RV when full hookups were not available and then dumping them as soon as possible. Traveling distancing with them full means a lot of weight is bouncing around with the movement of the RV.


It is not common place for them to drop out, but I have seen then crack and I think prudent use might be to not have them full while underway. I don't think using them on the road is harmful as most folks don't fill them while traveling.


I don't think the issue is "full or empty", just not to unduly stress supports of fastener for no reason.
