water tank sizes on campervan
« on: July 26, 2015, 07:59:12 PM »
Hi I bought a 1988 Ford Econoline Getaway van.
I see the water tank is 12 gallons.. .but there is a hot water tank,, and I think it might be 6 gallons,, ,but I am not sure....
Sooo.. if it is 6 gallons and the regular water tank is 12 gallons,, then I have 18 gallons of water - RIGHT?
If anyone knows the size of the hot water tank and if my calcs for water availability is correct let me know.
Also... how big would the grey water holding tank be?  I have a recirculating toilet and I understand that procedure and drainage fine,,, but if anyone can give me more info on the hot water tank size and holding tank size for this van that would be much appreciated, thanks.

Take 5 gallon buckets of water and dump them in the sink and count how many buckets it takes to fill the tank.
