Default Completely drain water tank/tank supports

While under my trailer getting it ready for summer (if we have one) I noticed what looked like sediment build up in my fresh water tank. Then I noticed one of the tank supports had bent.

I also noticed what looked like two plugs on the underside of the tank. Are they removable? If so, what do I need to do when I put them back?

What about the bent support? I read a mention of a fix on another thread but no details.

TIA,
Jon

Default Fresh water tank

What you think is sediment on your tank may be algae. Since my tank is under the camper floor, exposed to daylight, and white translucent polyethylene, I had alot of algae growth.

As for the plugs in your tank, if they are sealed, and are not drain valves I wouldn't touch them...my tank has two on the top of the tank which I believe are from the rotomolding process of making the tank, and they are sealed.

The bent tank support you mention...I would first try to figure out what caused it to bend. Perhaps not heavy duty enough to support the tank weight. My tank supports are bolted to the frame, if your bent one is...perhaps a welding shopcan fabricate a new stronger one using the bent one as a template.
