Is there a way to visually look into the fresh water tanks to see the water level getting low, or to see how dirty thay may be? Confused

On my P31-2 there are inspection ports on the top of each fresh water tank. The port tank is easy, just look under the seat cushion. To get at the starboard tank you need to remove the cushion and slide the seat extension out. You unscrew the inspection ports and with a flashlight you can get a good look inside the tanks. When you do you will likely realize that you don't want to drink the water. A layer of biofilm typically coats the tank. With a high pressure hose you can clean this somewhat, and a bit of bleach helps keep the water from getting too funky. But I still use the water only for washing.
