    not driving tankers half empty will help with the water sloshing.

    Well, the design of most tanks, whether on a tanker or on a pumper, always have baffles, at least on newer models. I drive a 6000 gallon water tanker, and even with the baffles, all that water slams forward when you're stopping and makes for very unpleasant driving. Back home we have a pierce quint and 3D manufacturing pumpers, all have baffles.

    This is just a guess here, but having seen the inside of some newer fuel tanks, it's probably similar. Mine in particular has sort of a "maze" in the middle of it for the fuel to get to the fuel pump. I would think tankers would be set up somewhat the same. It not only helps keep them from sloshing side to side, but also front to back. Having a few thousand gallons of water come slamming forward when you're trying to stop is probably not much fun...

    Could be sheets of metal or possibly poly material... and yes they have holes in them.

    what are they? just sheets of metal (or whatever) in the center of the tank with holes?

    Trucks!!!!

    Who is the maker of your trucks(apparatus)? and if you know, how do they prevent (or help stop) water from sloshing around, lessening hazards of rollovers??
