Grey water leak

We took the trailer out for our first trip of the year this past weekend. We could hear water leaking from the galley tank. Drained the tank and eventually it stopped leaking from the underbelly. Tried again with a little water in the sink and it leaked again. Also noticed a slight leak from the bathroom gray tank. We aren't positive on this one yet if water flowed forward or if it has a leak too. I have always winterized the trailer my self and never had a problem. Always made sure to pour extra fluid down the drains to protect the traps. Water is not entering the trailer and seems to com from the tank as it goes in. We bought extended warranty for the trailer would it kick in here or am I better off to fix it my self.

Dropped the underbelly and it turns out the tank is cracked right near where the abs fitting leaves. Is the a repair kit for this. Looking at plasti mend.

Nothing to loose trying it. Just going to leak on the ground. Like most adhesives/sealants clean it real good and maybe scuff with a scotch brite pad for "tooth"

I hear mixed reviews on the patches due to possibly of flexing.

Nothing lost in trying!

I would say your problem sounds like a good one to have. Just put a bowl under the leak and you'll have plenty of "gravy" for your mashed taters.

There was a guy on another forum (from my previous 5th wheel model) who had the same problem and used the PlastiMend through Amazon, I believe. He said it did a good job. Apparently, there is a lot of stress where the neck of the pipe leads into the tank and he was somehow able to use a flexible fitting to take out some of that stress. I guess it depends on where the crack is.
