    Anybody aany Idea of the capacity of the Fresh and waste water tanks on a 2001 Elddis Autostratus. I want to get her weighed before we set off for 3 weeks in Germany and Alsace and seems such a waste of water to fill her up just to dump it! As water weighs 10lb a gallon? if I knew the capacity it could be worked out without watste.

    Thanks
    Harry

    A US gallon of fresh water at 4 degrees C weighs 8.34 pounds. An imperial gallon at 62 deg F (old UK system) weighs 10 pounds. :Smile::Smile:
