Fresh Water Tank Mounted How?

Been away from the site for a long time, but have a question about '05 2955RL fresh tank. Had to take a highway detour a couple of days ago that was brutal. Noticed it looked like my fresh tank which was full at the time may have shifted a bit. The drain udder seemed to be pinched and possibly out of alignment thru the belly cover. Drains slower now because of it. Anyone know specifically how the FWT is mounted and fastened in? Is it bolted to the frame, or does it have straps around it?

My 05 2980RL's water tank rested on two cross rails between the main frame beams. There were two metal straps running under the tank about 1/4 the way in from both ends. Aside from the plumbing lines ... there was nothing holding it in place side to side.

Thanks! That tells me what I wanted. 2980 and 2955 should be the same. I think it actually repositioned itself a bit on the trip home when empty. Think I'll just keep a close eye on it. Don't feel like pulling the rear stabilizers and dropping the belly cover at this point just to look. It's not leaking or anything.

I had a 2955. The tank was set on 2 rails which allowed it to move. The drain extended below the bottom of the camper. The tank shifted because there was nothing holding it in place and broke the drain off.
