2014 v3605 weight.

Weighed my V3605. Camper has all the things we leave in it along with some adult beverages and couple cases of bottled water. No water in holding tanks and approx 10gals of gas in generator tank. Had 13500lbs trailer weight and 10800 on trailer axels and 2700lbs pin weight. Hope this helps anyone who was curious.

Food for for thought. My dealer told me they have had a couple of fresh water tanks crack due to folks filing the up and traveling. It was believed that the shifting of the water back and forth caused the cracks.

My thought was okay... sounds like to me the tank should be constructed to handle what it was designed to carry. They say, it was but apparently flex wasn't factored in! I dont carry full water, not even in the bus I owned. Always filled up when close to destination if dry camping. But, as I said you should be able to carry what it will hold. Some disagree obviously.

Mine was full because at PDI dealer had filled it. V series only has 96 gallon water tank while non V series has 160 gallons. I wonder which ones failed? We dry camp in the winter out in the desert so I need to fill before heading out cause ........well it's the desert & no water around.
Never had a problem with any of my RV's having water tanks leak or crack.

I haven't any problems either but over the years I know people that have.... no fun. Not sure which tanks present a problem. I'll ask next time I go by if I can remember without water in the desert at least you'll have a mirage
