    Just installed a new 10 gallon water tank and Zebra 2-way faucet in my 1978 Rockwood 806. Found a cracked check valve in the city water line but at least I have tank water! https://flic.kr/p/LCc5qw

    Sounds like you are happy with the mod. You will need to replace the anti back flow valve
    if you are going to hook to city water. Good Luck and Happy Camping

    Yup, got to take a trip to the RV store on Thursday to get a replacement check valve.

    By the way, what would be a good way to keep the water tank from moving around while still allowing me to remove it easily or at least tip it up on end at the end of the season for more complete drainage?

    I just used bungee cords to secure ours in place.....2 years now without any excessive movement.

    Just sink eye-screws into the wooden floor inside the compartment to attach the bungees to?

    If you need to.....under the dinette seat I put it, there were enough cross-members, supports, & whatnots to hook to that I didn't need to...YMMV.
