Default Pressurized Water System

Does anyone has information on installing a pressurized water system in the F150? Specifically, location and size of the tank and how it affected your vehicle. Ideally, I'm going to be installing a 15-20 gallon system with a UV filtration system in place to filter the water as its being filled and used. I figure that should give us 4-5 days of water use, cooking, drinking, rinsing off, between refills.

Not sure who has done anything like this but you may research fresh water systems in boats to see how they are set up and where you can buy parts. Mostly they are 12 volt and you can probably get what you need to make this happen at West Marine.

Or freshwater stuff on RVs--they all have a tank with pump, etc. Pretty straightforward. Most of the freshwater tanks start in the 40 gallon range.

Default Tanks

custom tanks can be made in plastic or aluminum as I have done this for my boats. Look and call around.

I know basically what I want to install and where to get the parts. I just haven't seen it in a F-150. I'd like to instal the tank/s underneath, I'm just not sure where.

I wouldn't use a pressure system. Less issues to overcome if you use a 12v electric water pump. With the RV market, you can get everything you need off amazon, and cheaply. The hardest part will be finding the best sized plastic water container to fit your needs.

Found this site: https://www.expeditionportal.com/for...r.76944/page-2

I've seen others similar to it on Pinterest.
Good luck!

I suppose if you have the 23 gallon tank you could put the fresh water tank where the rest of the 36 gallon tank would be.
