    Just replaced my 400ltr flat tank with a 500ltr flat. I say flat, the 500 flat is more cube shaped than flat. Anyhow, I've fitted it with the central baffle running lengthways to the van whereas the 400 one the two baffles ran transverse to the length of the van. It's like being in a boat!! Ok when the tank if full but once the level drops a bit the water must be waving like billy'o front to back. I can feel a forward & back sensation when I'm cruising along!!:D It's no biggie to turn it round but it's ideal as it is.

    How does everyone elses baffles run with what tank??

    It's a standard Wydale tank- the ones all wfp suppliers sell. They have either one or two built in baffles, like a long hole moulded into the tank.

    Where did you buy your tanks from? I guess they're not wydale unless they are bigger in size & the baffles change with size?

    I have heard of the baffles you describe. Wonder if I could fit something like this into the tank as like I say, for a few reasons it's pretty perfect the way it's in now. Anyone done this before??

    The baffles I've had are nothing special and I reckon if you buy a plastic down pipe and put that to small lengths it should do fine , may cost more than the tanks worth though lol
