I took my steel tank out of the beaver rv. I think its around a 100 gal. Shop said around 150.00 to clean. Then they said they had to cut open in 5 places to grind out rust. they  had it for 2 months. They called today and said it its done. The price is now 750.00. they did not put an epoxy coating in it. I think that is extreme price gauging. My question is this, I have found marine plastic tanks that should fit complete with sending unit and close to the same gallons. I know they use plastic in most light trucks and I know I would have to put a piece of plywood or steel under it.The tanks I found are under 400.00 with free shipping. Any thoughts on this would be helpful.....

The only issue I see with the plastic tank is getting the generator feed at the proper level. Without having the steel tank to gauge the height of the generator port you may consider filling the plastic tank with water a measured gallon at a time to make sure you are leaving a reasonable reserve for the coach engine.

 I would talk to the Manufacture and get there recommendation.you may be able to use stape with insulator under the straps just a thought . best of luck .

That is steep. When I had the one on my motorhome done--it is 85 gallons--the cleaning and inside coating cost me about $600. I am not familiar enough to give any real advise on the plastic tank.
