I bought a 92 gallon combo transfer tank for my pickup so I could go farther on our long camping trips. I got it all hooked up and put 40 gallons in it on Thursday for a camping trip this weekend.

Drove 160 miles to our camp site, that has wifi

When we got here I figured I would test it out and refill the trucks tank. Opened up the back of the truck to this...




Looks like one of the welds has a tiny crack in it at a start/stop point. Wonder how their "lifetime" warranty is going to work.

Looks like a sloppy weld on that bracket.

Probably not a good idea to have a leaky transfer tank under a truck cap.
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 4:15:16 PM EST
Looks like a slow leak, it'll evaporate and you'll be fine.

Should've been pressure tested at the factory.

LOL made in Amerika is the new made in China. I haven't found a single thing made in Amerika that is worth a fuck. Sure, most Chinese shit sucks, but everything made in Amerika has the union label and the quality is still a step below Kyber Pass Afghans.

Made in modern America = Chinese parts assembled by Mexicans.

another thing, if the welds are that bad, what do you think the internal coating looks like?

friend had something similar on his truck... 6 months in, filter kept clogging.
damn thing was rusted up something fierce on the inside.

Nobody is going to pay money for a real product made in the US unless they're really fucking serious about buying good stuff.

Inflation is a bitch. People don't understand what quality costs anymore and it's really hard to find a good company making good shit.

Look at a simple item, let's say it's $30 now. Fifteen years ago that item might have been $20. Here is the thing though; they're not the same item. The new one is shit, and getting the same quality that you got a decade and a half ago is going to cost you $40-50.

We've gone nearly three decades now with more and more quality goods being replaced by utter crap made overseas, while the government plays games with the Consumer Price Index. Filling store shelves with cheap shit helped the feds cover the real consequences of printing money like idiots.


So now people don't really understand the value of a dollar - which is a hell of a lot less than it used to be. But we're not done here yet. It's time to talk about business culture in the US.

It's more acceptable than ever to have "ripping people off" be your main business model. Many people are just plain rotten fucks. American goods sold for what the uninformed think are fair prices aren't just crap because they're cutting corners, they're also crap because people suck.

You sure it's leaking from the bracket? Those caps weep fuel when they get too hot sometimes.

also, your camping spot has wifi, but no local gas stations that would allow you to fill up so you could avoid traveling with a fuel bomb in the enclosed bed of your truck?

Also, I agree that the product and the install both look like shit. Also, I think that's the first time I've seen a pic of one installed under a canopy.

Bunch of rocket surgeons in GD

It is diesel. I researched a lot before hand to make sure it was safe to install under a canopy. It is fine.

The reason it is not bolted down is because I wanted to do a trip with it to make sure it is set up how I wanted. You know, in case something didn't work, or it leaked... That is why I only put enough fuel in it to test the system.

Now I do not have to spend half a day getting it unbolted to get the warranty work done. I will do the exact same thing the next time also, test it out, if all is good then I will drill holes in my truck to mount it down.

It is Aluminum.

Go back to blasting away at something you know nothing about

Sounds like a bunch of excuses to cover for your lack of a proper install.



Loose shit in the back of a truck, especially when its full of flammable liquid is not really that difficult to understand Mr space traveler.



Then again your concerned whether your camping spot has wifi or not.
