That sounds like the same thing. The crack runs from about 6 o'clock to about 8 o'clock around the bottom of the fitting. I think I am going to try the plasti mend. My next door neighbour is an RV repair guy so I will see what he thinks about how to fix it. Just waiting for him to come home from the weekend.

You probably spent a lot for the extended warranty, so use it.

So what I have found out with this problem. The problem is mice have chewed both my grey tanks. No warranty or insurance for rodent damage, I have the underbelly dropped and have ordered a product called Plasti-mend to patch these small holes. I will update how it goes, reviews on other forums seem positive. Also chewed some ducts which required foil tape.

Well this just gets worse all the time. I have patched both grey tanks and they are sealed and I checked the black and it also has been chewed and has a very slight leak which hasn't shown up but leaks into the insulation. Pulled back more underbelly and patched this hole now too. I have put together the galley tank area and tomorrow I will put the front together. Underbelly up and re hook up the gas line. What a pain in the butt. I am only into this repair for just over $100 and my time. I figure replacing 3 tanks at the dealer at $140/hr would get pretty close $2500-$3000. We have put some 110v sonic rodent repel things in the trailer to hopefully keep the little buggers out.
