Water tank

I started today a major renovation on the 76 Trillium 1300
I noticed that their is no water tank .
I would like to know and to see if possible, pictures of where
and how the tank is sitting in the rig.
I also got rid of the Belly Band, the guy at the Marine store
sold me a can of Bondo-Hair ( long strand reinforced fiberglass filler.)
Would this be good enought to fill the belly band?
I'll appreciate any advice

We found that a gallon jug water system was actually just about as convenient as a built-in tank, pump, hoses and faucets.

We found after trying it for awhile that we prefer the jug system. For example, it gives us better control of water usage. We can also keep water for drinking separate from water for washing. In all the years using the jug system we've never experienced a malfunction.

So we've deleted our water tank, pump and other apparatus.

I'm with Loren on this one. Besides the plumbing problem I just don't want to try to keep a fresh water tank fresh. Even if we had a tank I would want to boil any water used for cooking.

I am the one out at the water spout with my tea kettle. When we were hooked up to city water once my husband noticed a huge amount of grey water coming from our sink. For us we use less water when using smaller jugs.

We also use the gallon jug method unless we are camping in one spot for 3 or 4 or more days It is just as easy as filling and draining the fresh water tank . We have a functioning tank and pump but do not see a need to use them when we're camping for just a weekend
