Trailer: 2004 Bigfoot 21 ft Front Bedroom

Hi Folks. New member here. Own a 2004 21' FB Bigfoot. Got kinda tired of the noisy pump waking us up at night. So, I insulated the enclosure under the bench and added an accumulator tank. Moocho improved. We can turn the pump off at night and still have plenty of water pressure for nighttime tinkles. Thought I'd add to this forum as it's populated by so many great members.

Cheers,
Kevin

Hi,

I can't figure out the orientation on your pictures. Is your set up looking like this, viewed from the top?

=======================================

Oui, Alain. You're looking straight down into area under the dinette bench. The tank can be installed on its side or vertically and because there's a bladder inside the tank empties completely for winterizing. There is some distortion on the divider wall photo (it's straight up & down) but it looks like it's slanted. Make sure you loop the water line, too. You'll get some slack, if you need it and it reduces the vibrating that RV diaphragm pumps make.

Cheers,
Kevin
