Leak

We have had a 2007 Jayco 19 for a few months. On a recent trip we had the grey water tank almost full and I noticed a small leak coming from the the connection between the tank and the pipe leading to the drain valve. The tank and the pipe are connected with a pipe clamp. Is this the stock set up or did the previous owner install the clamp?
What's the best way to deal with this leak??

I would try to reposition the clamp and tighten it down.

I dont recall seeing a hose clamp on the tank, but I am not sure I have looked that closely. Is there any type of rubber grommet between the tank and the PVC? If it is just straight PVC, I think I would try to goop it up with a little cement all around the connector and see if I could seal it off. There should be very little pressure on that connection so I would no think it would take much.

The "best" way to deal with it would be to disassemble it all and re-cement it, but that would by a royal pain! Worse case I would wrap it with some sort of rubber hose covering and use a couple of hose clamps to tighten it down.

If you continue to have problems, send a few pics up so we can see exactly what you are dealing with.
