Hauling water

I have a 2016 Cruiser RV Radiance. Anybody know how safe it is to haul a full tank of water. Ive heard some makes don't support their tanks very well. Mine has a covered underside so I would have to cut a hole to inspect. Also, any tips on cutting an inspection hole would be appreciated.

I have always filled my tank at home. Have with every camper we have owned. I added 3 2"x1/4" angle iron braces . The tank is going nowhere. As for the extra weight can't really tell.

You might get away with it but I think you are asking for trouble unless you visually inspect and maybe reinforce. I travel with just enough water for an occasional roadside flush/hand wash.

I understand a lot of boondock campers fill up as near as possible to their destination to minimize stresses.

There are various ways to cut an access underneath but you need to be careful not to cut something important above the plastic. You can Gorilla Tape them back in place or get fancy with some kind of hinge and positive lock for future inspections. I've never done it so I can't give any specific advice.
