Fresh water holding tank ?

Do they put baffles in the fresh water tank?

Not that I've ever seen over my 60 years of RV'ing.

Fresh water tanks aren't that big to require baffling like a semi truck liquid carrier.
Not that much weight shift.

since they are generally blow molded out of poly...I think it would be expensive for baffles to be added. An aluminum semi truck carrier tank is built in sections so it's not hard to add baffles. The baffles also help support the girth of the tank and the support is likely needed anyway.

Why interested? Are you seeing your tank slosh around?
The tanks have little attachment generally...just a cleat at the bottom with a couple of screws to keep it from sliding.

There is great need for a sarcasm font.

No, just curious.
Thanks for your responses.

Actually could be an argument to run either full or empty to minimize sloshing... ;-)

With the weight of my rig I'd never notice 800+ #'s sloshing around.
