    Fresh water capacity on 1996 2855-gctid568280

    Can any tell me how big the fresh water tank and waste water tank hold.

    Its been awhile since I had my 1996 2855 but my memory seems to say that both tanks are in the 20+ gallon capacity. I am sure someone else will chime in here with the exact specs.

        I'm thinking that the holding tank is 20 gallons and the fresh water is 40 gallons.

          Guys you are all awesome as you know I purchased this boat last year never went into the water until two weeks ago so if I sound a little dumb please excuse me one more stupid question do I have to do something to put water in the hot water tank like turn on a valve or something I filled up the fresh water tank is that all I needed to do or is there a valve on the hot water tank that has to be opened again sorry if this is a stupid question don't want to burn the heating element out

              There shouldn't be anything special on the hot water tank. Unless it was added by someone. Just turn on the hot water at the faucet and it might bleed out some air if the tank was emptied for winter storage. As soon as it runs a solid stream of water you should be good to go. It will only heat water if the engine is running up to temp or you are plugged into shore power.

                  . It may only heat with shore power. My 3055 didn't have the engine coolant heat plumbing. Yours might not either.

                    Hmmm...mine works both ways. I thought it was standard of boats that had HWT would normally have heat exchanger built into the tank to heat water with engine circulation. Perhaps it was an option. :whistle:

                            Don't know if this helps, but on my '99 it is 33 gal fresh water, 20 gal black water, per my manual.
