Has anyone with a 2012 Cruiser Patriot 335SS checked the size of their fresh water tank? I filled the tank on our 335SS and then drained the water into 5 gal buckets. Seven buckets later the water stopped draining. I thought the drain was no near the bottom so I thought I would use the water pump to remove the rest. Not so. The pump broke suction almost immediately and the tank level indicator shows the tank as being empty. We traded in an Alpha with a 100 gal freshwater tank and were concerned with going to a 58 gal tank (as the salesman and Crossroads brochure said it was). Now it appears we may only have a 35 gallon tank.

That 58 gallon fresh water tank includes the 12 gallons in your water heater so you really only have a 46 gallon tank. At least that is always the way they haveadded it up in the past. Very misleading. And the odds are your drain and water pickup for the pump are neither one in the very bottom of the tank so you still have water in it. Edited by: Hunter11

Thank you for that clarification. I did not realize that they would include the hot water heater. I also have found that this tank gets air-bound easily and takes a fair amount of time to clear if it does get air-bound. Thank you again for the info.
