Where did you install it at? I bought a 21 gallon but its just too big... well its really too heavy for where I planned to put it.
I installed the tank between the swing arms, vertically. That is the long side down the trailer length then the next side vertically. Welded on 4 vertically posts with a metal plate on the bottom.

How about a few pictures, Including your hook ups and how you fill and vent it.
Here are some photos. I actually have 3 tanks mounted. A 9 gal between the axle and 2 10 gal further forward.

Thanks for the great pics, looks like a well designed system! What are the dimensions of the forward mounted tanks? Do you also have an on board hot water heater? I'm guessing there is also a common fill line

Here is the info from Amazon on the fron water tanks.
.Recpro RV water Tank 10 gal.
I have not installed a water heater yet. There is one filler mounted on the driver side next to my relocated front storage box. The vent for the tanks is up through the generator compartment over to the kitchen compartment. The hose is long enough to put outside the box when filling so no water gets inside. The pump is mounted above the driver side swing arm. Out of the way and protected. At he present I have a pot filler spigot in the kitchen compartment that is plumed through the main rear storage area out through the bottom of the trailer to the line coming from the pump.

Have any of you guys or gals purchased the Habitat Off Road On Board Water System? Didn't get any response the last time I asked so maybe no-one had purchased or received theirs yet. Just curious if anyone had any experience with or thoughts about the system?
