RE: Where is it?

For some odd reason the tank is usually pretty much direclty behind the outside water inlet you use to fill the thank.

Typically its hiding in a bench seat, mayyybe in a cabinet.

On my Trillium Jubilee it looks like it under the dinette table molded in but i haven't really checked any further because I just got it. But that was going to be one of my questions because there is nothing under the seats themselves.

Hi: Verna...On our former Boler the tank was slung under the dinette floor supported by a 2x2 wood frame, the fiberglass window cut outs, and four long bolts thru the floor of the trailer. Your trillium could be the same. I took ours down and bleached it and replaced all the hoses, bolts, and fittings!!!

We have a 1979 Trillium 4500 and the water tank is under the table (or bed, depending on how you set your Trill up).
It is under the carpet or flooring and is easily reached and unclamped. Lifts right out if you need to clean it. It is quite sturdy and flat and actually helps support the floor. Probably yours is set up about the same.

wow they really tucked that puppy away in the Trillum. Put it in there like a sly ninja Wish other trailers my family has had over the years tucked it away that good.

Are some trailers still doing it that way. I would like my water tank centralized like that when I rebuild my Scamp. Better for offroad to have the weight centered well. Knowing what manufactures do it that way makes it easier to find a tank.

BTW- wiffle balls make good tank baffles. Helps keep the slosh down.

Is the water connection at the rear of the trailer somewhere?
