EXETER, Pa. — NTP-Stag announced today it added MAX-Tank to its auxiliary water storage category.
MAX-Tank is owned and operated by parent company, Mangold Advancements, which is based in California and focused on consumer solutions for the RV, automotive, motorsports, and construction markets.
MAX-Tank is its flagship product, which produces water auxiliary tanks and transfer pump kits that are designed to maximize RV holding capacity, thereby giving enthusiasts the ability to “stay longer and play longer” in remote locations, the release noted.
Running out of water while traveling or camping is a common concern for RV owners, often limiting them from enjoying the full range of their vehicle’s on-board conveniences, the release added. MAX-Tank portable water systems seek to provide a safe and sustainable solution that can withstand the rigors of frequent use and real-world conditions, it noted.
The MAX-Tank product line offers two systems, one for fresh water storage and the other for gray water management. The fresh water system is designed to carry 50 gallons of water that can be easily transferred to an RV or accessed for alternate use, such as tent camping or gardening.
Constructed of high density, UV-stabilized polyethylene, the tank features a vented, screw-on cap and pre-installed bulkhead and brass inlet plumbing.
Operation is simple. By virtue of a custom-designed 12-volt water transfer pump that inserts into the hitch receiver, a 7-pin connector for power source and 10- and 25-foot fresh water transfer hoses.
The gray water system includes a 50-gallon tank of the same material, as well as an easy-to-operate vented, screw cap and pre-installed bulkhead and inlet valves.
Designed to extract gray water from the RV’s system for easier transport and dumping, it features a standard RV sewer discharge valve with additional plumbing parts for right, left, and straight discharge configuration options.
The system also includes a 10-foot sewer hose, clear sewer valve cap with garden hose adapter, 10- and 25-foot gray water transfer hoses and the same hitch-mounted transfer pump and power source as the fresh water system.
“Max-Tank has brought to market a superb niche product,” said Thomas Probst, category manager. “Developed themselves as recreation enthusiasts, they have prototyped, field tested, and refined this product through extensive off-grid research. It’s an ingenious solution to a pervasive problem in the off-grid recreational market that is growing tremendously,”
“Dealer feedback at NTP-Stag Expo was excellent with the common refrain being that consumers will immediately recognize the utility, simplicity, and value of these systems,” he added.
