Seems like your sensor isn't working correctly. On my motorhome... the tank empties by running out a tube that goes down into the rear wheel well area.
Yours might be different. Check your manual if you have one.
Try it half full this time... if you don't use it all you will know next time that you can get by on less if you choose to. For us, 2 people and a dog, we can get by for a day on a quarter tank... but I don't remember my tank size... it's something we figured out by trial and error on the road.... we run into more danger with an over full gray water tank needing a dump than we do running out of water.

I like to keep things full, just in case we get caught out. For example, if something happens and we end up sitting in a Cummins parking lot on Labor Day weekend, having to run the generator, etc. Hopefully we'll never be stuck "dry camping" in that way long enough to go through 100 gallons of fresh water...

Water? Never leave home without it. I enjoy the luxury of having the ability to boondock on the way to a destination. And the coach loves the weight as we cruise down the road at speeds most would disagree with. Flushing the system out at every campsite, great idea, especially if you are in the habit of using unknown untreated well water, gotta keep that stuff moving so you don't get the odor issues.

Unless you don't have a problem with running into weird tasting campground water sources I would suggest hauling all your unit will hold. In my case my manual claims 100 gallons. At 8.34# per gallon it ain't all that much weight.

The question was about how much water do you travel with.
I don't see a problem with someone correcting erroneous information.
