Size of fresh water tank

I have looked through my owner's manual but I cannot locate the size of the fresh water tank. Does anyone one you lovely people happen to know how many gallons the fresh water tank is on an 87 Southwind? All I can locate with a google search is newer MHs which shows 80-120 gallons. I need to know so I can do a disinfection of the water system.

Try looking around the back of some of the cabinet doors. If your lucky there may be a sticker with that kind of info. My coach had it on the kitchen cabinet door.

I am able to see the side of my fresh water tank. So I took a 5 gal. bucket and made a mark at the 5 gal level. Then I filled my water tank full.

Drain 5 gal out of the tank and mark the level. Continue doing so until the tank is empty. Label your lines with gallon amounts. Now at a glance I can see how much water I have onboard. Helps when boondocking.
