Mercedes Sprinter dually vans (3500) are not the same as Sprinter 2500’s. You might need to modify your spare tire brackets or cut spacers from the frame of the van. Dually wheels are narrower in width than non dually wheels, so the spare tire basket isn’t the same. The Mercedes Sprinter 28-Gallon Spare Tire Basket Water Tank (SP-ST-28) is made for the Sprinter 2500.

How to Clean our Camper Van Water Tanks:
Make sure you rinse the water tank before first use, as there can be plastic bits left in the tank from the manufacturing process.
You can use bleach or vinegar to clean our fresh water tanks (or you can one of our camper van fresh water tank cleaning solutions).
It’s best to clean your water tank at the start of each camping season (once a year).
Step 1: Drain tank completely
Step 2: Mix 4 oz bleach or vinegar with 1 1⁄2 gallons of hot water
Step 3: Pour bleach/vinegar solution into tank
Step 4: Fill tank with fresh water until its full
Step 5: Let sit for 12 hours
Step 6: Drain tank completely, refill with fresh water and drain completely again (you may need to repeat this rinse step a few times)
Camper Van Water Tank Venting:
Polyethylene camper van water tanks must be vented. These fresh water tanks are not designed to handle pressure or a vacuum. A vent is necessary because as the tank is filled or emptied of its liquid an equal proportion of air must be displaced simultaneously. Discharge of a water tank without a vent would cause a vacuum to occur. A generally accepted rule concerning vent size is that it should be the same size as the tank’s largest outlet.
