    Anybody use a twin tank system?

    Thinking of putting 2 400ltr tanks in my vivaro

    Is it better than using one tank?

    That's what I'm planning on doing but not fill them both to the top because of payload, I fought two 400 tanks with 4 baffles not filled to the top would be better than a 650 tank with 2 baffles filled to the top

    Sounds a good idea to me and you can probably pickup two second hand matching 400ltr upright tanks on ebay cheap;)

    Or just make your own baffles and put them in one large tank.
    Saves on the extra cost of another tank....and the extra cost and weight of a frame to fit two tanks.

    Have you done that yourself?
    I can't imagine something you wedge in standing up to several hundred litres of water.

    Yes, and it works fine. Same principle as baffle balls.....the water flows through the series of holes drilled into the pipe and stops the slosh of water in the tank.
