Newbie with black water tank replacement question

Hello all,

I'm new to travel trailer camping. I have a Jayco Jay Flight 264BHW and already have to do some maintenance on the black water tank. I've managed to crack the connection from the tank to the pipe it connects to - I may have to replace the entire assembly, I just haven't had time to undo everything to see what's damaged. Anyhow, I was thinking someone here might know the dimensions of the tank or know where I can look to find the right parts for the entire assembly.

I'm sure to be here a lot because like I said, I'm new to the whole thing and I don't know squat about towing or RVs for the most part - my wife and I both love camping though and our two young boys love it too so we're in it now!

Thanks!
-John

They make some pretty good epoxy that might repair your problem depending on how bad it is.

You can contact Jayco customer service ( call or email ) with your VIN # and they can probably give you info you are looking for. I'm not sure, but I'm thinking they are pretty standard pipe parts...

If you cracked a PVC pipe you can possibly use a coupling fitting and just splice it back together.

Well, I knew someone would have to ask....
I decided to re-arrange some of the enormous boulders you'll find in fast food restaurants with my brand spanking new Jayco. Bent an axle ($516 for the fix to that) and also cracked the pip;es under the black water tank. I didn't notice the pipe issues until we were at the campsite and it wasn't terribly bad but I still need to fix it. I think it will be fairly simple. I'll give Jayco a ring later today and see if they can send a part.

Thanks to all for your help and replies!

I HATE those stupid rocks. Every one of them has bumper graffiti, so you know LOTS of people are trying to move them!
