Temporary fix...... Far from a permanent solution, but should hold for the last few trips of the season

Flex tape supposedly stops leaks instantly. But I'm one that tends to go over the top, so the plastic weld went on first. Waiting for it to cure up and then I'll be tossing the tape over that just for extra security. Click image for larger version

Throw the tank in the back of the truck and take it to the trash dump yourself, most allow this. They will likely weigh you in and out and you'll be charged the minimum amount.

Black Tank Repair

Check out the reapir that Ray did in this video to his cracked black tank. It may be worthwhile trying this before replacing the old tank.

I had a broken(cracked) outlet on my older motorhome black tank, I repaired it with a product called Plasti-mend. Worked wonders, easy to use, and specially designed for abs plastic,

Just my thoughts, because I have fixed the same thing (not RV tanks) over and over again. If I were keeping the RV, I would replace the cracked tank with a new one. Reasons why? I think if it cracked once is it going to also crack there again or else where starting the whole repair process over. Did it crack due to bad tank, bad install, abuse or age. Just replace with new and avoid further problems with the old.
