Relocating a Bourton fresh water tank Empty Relocating a Bourton fresh water tank

The used 2019 Bourton we are buying has the fresh water tank installed internally under the drivers side bench seat. I was told that this is an option owners could select ifthey intended to camp in extreme cold weather  to prevent icing.
Since we always use club sites, we don't  wildcamp in winter, so i am planning to relocate the fresh water tank back to the standard factory location underneath the vehicle floor. Our Corinium  had this set up and we never had an issue thanks to the tank heaters.
Moving  the fresh water tank will create more useful storage space under the seat. Has anyone had experience of moving  the fresh water tank and could offer advice?

I'm afraid you were told a porky; The Bourton Fresh water tank installation consists of two tanks, one under the floor and another above the floor.  The are connected together and act as one with the pump being in the lower one and the level sensor probes spread over both tanks.

two more references to the 'under bench tank' in this thread to which Peter gave an almost identical 'oh no they dont' response.shrugg

Yes, in fact I am considering removing the (pitiful) pair of tanks holding 62ltr and replacing them with a single 100ltr+ tank in the offside bed space. I will probably take the opportunity to replace the chattering Whale pump with a Shurflo too.

Since you always use club sites, why are you bothered re tank capacity?
Just a thought!

I think you are directing the question at the OP as we now rarely use club sites including in winter hence our need to increase the fresh water capacity and have it inboard. But I think the OP is more concerned with freeing up internal storage space.
