Hole in kitchen grey water tank,need help

,,while under my jayco eagle 27.5 I noticed a lot of under belly screws were missing. material was sagging, so I tried to screw in a new screw. Well grey water came out of the hole. So I guess I screwed in to the tank. The holes in the underbelly material clearly had screws in them before, apparently during warranty work they did not put the under belly back in the same position. So my question is how can I repair that 1/4 inch hole and not have to pay for a new tank & installation.

There are numerous solutions out there...do a google search. Shouldn’t be necessary to replace the tank. Here’s one example:

I did the same thing to my first Jayco's fresh water tank. I cleaned the area around the hole two to three inches. I then got a roofing screw with the rubber washer and screwed it into the tank. I went to the hardware store and got a good epoxy that would stick to plastic and coated the hole area really good. I let it set up for about two days then filled the tank full. I had no leaks and it cost me less than $20.00
Good luck in your repairs.
Chris

Thank you for the replay. Another question is did you cut a hole in the under belly material and how did you repair.

I just removed enough screw's from the underbelly cover to be able to repair the area where the hole was.

Cut only three sides of an access hole and open it up like a door. When your done working close little flap you cut out and tape the three cut sides shut with some Gorilla Tape. I did this three years ago and the tape is still there. Make sure the surface is clean so tape can stick well.
