Could you get those measurements from Pleasureway to send to your tank maker?

A bit more complicated than length and width. My tanks (not your model), have some subtle contours for support straps; yours may too. Plus the location of openings for water draw and drains is critical. It's hard for someone to get you exact measurements while the tank is bolted tightly under their van.

Without Pleasureway's exact specs, you might be just as well off measuring the space you have available.

Even if you had the exact dimensions of the likely very odd shaped tank, they wouldn't do you a lot of good, I fear. Unless you are will to pay for a mold to be built, a fabricator couldn't duplicate that shape reasonably as they would be using flat sheets, with maybe so minor shaping. You would be looking at getting a rectangle based tank (can be rectangles attached to each other), to come as close to the frame and other stuff as possible. You would most likely lose capacity as it would not be able to use all the space.


What happened with the qetting a quote for the supplier of Pleasure-eay? That is far and away the best solution even if it costs more.

If you are planning to replace the tank by yourself, I would suggest to go a little further and measure available space and fit the new tank to that space. I did that for my DIY, not a rocket science; measured space available, made drawings, had someone fabricate SS tanks and I installed them.

Or find an available tank which would fit to that space, there are a few marine or RV tank manufacturers.

Having trouble getting PW dealers to even call me back.
Not a big enough item for them, I guess.

Try Fretz RV (somewhere in eastern PA). Don't worry, when you get the bill, it'll certainly be big enough for them (but worthwhile for you in the long run).

After talking to PW about dealers not getting back to me, they adked for the year, model and VIN.

They sent me the tank dimensions, and the name of a tankmaker along with the part number and phone #.

I called and requested a quote..so maybe getting closer.

Thank you PW!!

Great news! I hope they give you an estimate that's less than what you figured on (figure high in any event).

Jamella: Keep updating on outcome. I've got a 97 PW. So far the fresh tank is ok although I noticed that my father-in-law did some fiberglass tape repair at one time. Would be interesting to know how your issue resolves. best.glenn

Good morning,

TANK WATER FRESH '99 DODGE 11 3/4" X 19 3/4" X 29 3/4"
I think this tank ( #100103007) can be sourced from RV Parts Nation phone: 574-264-5575
Check dimensions to be sure it is correct.

Thst is the response from PW!
Great help!!

I have called Partsnation twice, and received no callback!
Unbelievalbe how hard this is!!

PlaticWaterTanks has one that is 12 X 20 X 30..so 1/4 inch larger in each dimension.

Looks like it will work, so am probably going with that.

Wow, you are very lucky that it is a simple rectangular tank, as many are not and require a special mold! That said, you need to know what fittings the tank should have, and where they are located (esp. the fill port), so that they line up properly with your plumbing, although this isn't as critical with a fresh water tank than it is on the gray and black tanks.

I would advise that before you have the replacement tank installed, that you have the exhaust system (including supports) fully checked out, and fixed/replaced as necessary, so that this scenario doesn't happen again. Also, you'll have to deal with someone making/installing proper mounts for the tank itself.

I have the old straps, corners and nuts from the original tank, so that helps.

It is mainly the fill port I am concerned with, snd yes, I need to get under and make sure standard is in tgr right spot, else I will have to pay extra to grt it moved.

Hi Jamelia,

I have a 2000 Pleasure-Way Excel TD on a Dodge chassis. I was able to go out and measure my tank as best I could. Luckily, it is a beautiful day in Greenwood Village, Colorado. (Supposed to get to 70 degrees today.)
I got 30" X 20" X 12" give or take 1/4".

Hope that helps. If you need photos, let me know before the cold weather comes in tomorrow.

Nancy

No, they never got back to me, so guessing they no longer carry that size.
PlasticTanks.com sell the Ronco tank in that size, $179 + $20 for the installed fitting holes, $97 shipping.

I got off cheap, methinks!

Will install the summer at home, where the straps and fittings are.
