ICON, a supplier of aftermarket components, has made several additions to its waste holding tank category. Model additions have been carefully planned based on feedback from parts distributors, dealers and small trailer manufacturers that were seeing their current supply dry up.
In total, 29 new tank sizes have been designed and planned for, with 19 already available. Additions range in capacity from 6 to 76 gallons, in a variety of drain configurations. The tanks are all designed to come standard with a 3-inch outlet spigot and 4 level sensing probes pre-installed.
The new models all match commonly used OEM tanks, making replacement easier for RV Repair shops and RV owners, according to a press release.
ICON products are sold through a network of distributors and resellers or direct to RVers at www.icondirect.com.
