Since when are the stock walls 1/4" thick? Charlie referred to 1/8 "skins", which would be the 1/8" plywood (popularly and improperly called "luan") on each side of a typical RV wall... with framing between them.

Someone must have a link to a suitable It's Friday photo showing the reinforcement...

Right... like the 75 litre (or is it 90 litres... depending on whether the website spec of 20 gallons is US or Imperial) fresh water tank in a 17'?

Without the reinforcing panel, the 1/8" plywood panels are attached to 3/4" thick wood framing, right? Then 3/4" plywood would fill the void in the wall (in the area where it is installed), which makes sense.
Yes. The the reinforced wall is really just putting 3/4 " plywood in the voids roughly 2/3 of from the top.

It should be called 'filler' because that is all it is. The wall is the same thickness regardless.

Hi Klem we were told ply was 3/8 in thick over the framing . And not to use screws over 1/2 which we haven't . When did they change putting ply in the voids ? Pat

Well, I took one for the team and paged through all posts in the It's Friday - Classic thread looking for wall reinforcement photos. Didn't find much. In post number 2789 on page 279 the reinforcement looks like thin (3/8?) plywood mounted on the framing. Moving on to post number 2865 on page 287 the reinforcement looks like 3/4 inch plywood mounted between the framing members. Who knows? Not me.

Here are a few pictures from when I had the fridge out. It was 3/4 from what I remember on the upper part of the wall.
