31FS fresh water tank broken

Hi guys and gals, this is my first post to this forum. Iíve owned my Jayco since it was new. Itís an Ď09 greyhawk 31FS. We love it, itís got 40k on the odometer.
My problem is, the fresh water tank has broken where it clamps to the body. Has anyone else had this issue? Does anyone know of a company to get a new one?

Hello! I see you're in the Los Angeles area, so I'll recommend a couple of RV shops I've used. I'm in the San Bernardino area. Richardson's RV in Riverside is a certified Jayco dealer and repair shop. Fritts Ford in Riverside has an RV specific repair department. And, Redlands Truck and RV does excellent work, but is a little pricey. Richardson's treated my good; loved the work at Redlands Truck and RV in spite of price; and, haven't used Fritts Ford, but I've heard fairly good things about them. Mrs. Fritts is huge police supporter, so she'll always have my vote! Hope it helps

Mines a 2017 FS and I admit I looked at that tank support with suspicion. Is it coming loose or is it actually cracked? Those big metal wrap around straps are not supports, there just there to hold it for the final install. I do think there are folks on the forum who have made tank support reinforcements on their models, not just the FS. One reason I don't run with full water is to keep it from over stressing the support.

Thank you for the replies, and the welcome.
Itís actually cracked/broken and leaking if filled more than 2/3 full. Itís at the rear of the tank on the passenger side. I took some pics, but my phone needs charging.

Iím considering replacing it myself, looking for a company to get the tank from.

P/s Iím a heavy equipment mechanic

Just wondering if it might be possible to plastic weld it. Remove it, plastic weld, then fill it on the driveway and see if it holds. I need to correct myself on my above post. I was mixing up the black and fresh tank. The fresh tank looks well supported, but maybe not in your situation.

On our lightly used 2008, the previous owner drove three screws to hold up a shelf into the water tank. While I ended up using epoxy to patch it up, I did find a supplier online thru Google:

Here are the pics, the crack/break is right where the weight hangs from that clamp

You may need to call Jayco customer service. They may give you the supplier. Have the vin # handy when you call. I have looked at websites that showed dimensions of replacement tanks, even had a grey tank added to an old camper years back. I would try a repair and better support first.

I have a 2009 Greyhawk 31SS I have looked at that water tank hate to think what it would take to get it out, almost looks as if the complete leaf spring assembly would have to come off to get it out.
