Exclamation Black Tank Missing!

We just got a 2005 Jayco Jay Flight 27. It has no black tank and we need to purchase a new one. Though we don't have the dimensions of the tank...since it isn't there. Can ANYONE help? Or could you tell me if the grey tank is the same size as the black tank because it is still attached lol

Or if you could tell me how to find this information (it is not in the manual.)

Thank you!!

Did you try contacting Jayco directly for the specs on that year and model. Might be a good place to start. Hope this helps.

I sent a request to them last week via their website, I am still waiting to hear back. Thank you for your help!

I would look up the specs and get the gallon rating of your model and year RV. Then I would ETrailer and ask if they have some kind of cross match system. I would also try calling Jayco and ask if they have a brand and model number. Your local dealer might have the ability to look this up and order you one. Possibly a plumbing schematic to help in getting all the right parts from Jayco?

Mine almost went missing as I happened to do a bottom inspection and found one of the two support straps had come loose from the single screw on one end. Needless to say I added screws on both black and gray tanks as a result.

They only keep those files for 10 years or less, so I doubt they will have the info.

Thank you! I didn't know about ETrailer, so that will be a very helpful resource. I will try these suggestions.

How was the camper used before you purchased it? What type of toliet do you have in it now? The underside frames may and will dictate the size and thickness. I have purchased generic tanks from Amazon. But you will need to look closer to the toliet setup now to make sure you can flush in the top of any tank you purchase.

From what I can find out, both your gray and black tanks were listed as 33 gallons. Whether they were the same design is unknown. Look over the gray tank for an identifying sticker, if it's still attached. It sounds like you're going to have to get creative to plumb one back in.

Just for informational purposes, the two identical 32.5-gallon tanks on our 2012 19RD were made by Ameri-Kart Inc which is now Myers Industries. Before they sold out, their website had diagrams, pictures and part numbers for their RV tanks. That's no longer the case. They are a supplier of rotomolded tanks for the RV industry and many others. Probably can't buy from them directly since they are a manufacturer.

Another source for a tank is RecPro.

While I have no experience in composting toilets, many say that they are the way to go. Point being, if you went with a composting toilet then having a black tank wouldn't be needed.

I will also add, if you are setup in a permanent location, a conventional toilet going directly to the sewage is what some people do. ~CA

Sadly, I was thinking it came from the factory that way.

You can try to send them an email at service@jayco.com. I would just measure they area where the black tank goes and by one that fits that area dimension wise.

ditto, find the height, width and length of the place it came from then find a tank that will go in the opening.

I had an old rig years back that only had one tank. Everything went into that one tank. I had a dealer (back then they were very competent) who ordered, installed and replumbed the unit so that I had a separate black and grey tank and was plumbed like the newer rigs were.

It was a reasonable addition.

Someone mentioned Amazon, I second that. They have a lot of RV holding tanks. They have detailed descriptions, fast one or two day delivery and easy returns if you buy the wrong size.

I would go to a campground or storage lot and try to find somebody with the same or near model year and look at theirs

Go to Jayco website and click on your state, find the nearest authorized dealer. Call them and give them your Vin #. They can order it for you.

I'm glad I wasn't the guy driving it when it decided to fall off.

...or the person behind them - yuchhh!
Had a full freshwater tank hit the highway at speed after nailing a pothole and scared the buh-geeziz out of DW in a chase vehicle. It slid off the crown to the side of road, but were able to retrieve and salvage it. Scary to see what very little holds them in place! Improved the mounts and would like to do the discharge tanks too. Won't travel with more than 1/3 tank after that, just enough for rest stop use. At over 8 lbs/gallon, it adds up quick and hits hard as a dynamic load.

I generally call the toll free number for customer service listed on the owners page when I need wiring and part info . I get through quickly , and have never had a problem getting the info I need.

Check the following, Amazon, Rec Pro, and particularly Icon they have a vast amount of tanks and skylights fenders etc.
Hope this helps. Cannot figure who would steal a black tank.
