Waste tank problem

I found a leak waiting to happen. The gray tank was against the metal bracket holding the black tank. I loosened the black tank and slid the whole rack over enough to get a piece of 1/8" steel secured between with sealant. Before picture was lost but this is an after shot.

I don't think I've seen this type of Tank arrangement. One good thing, you could remove fairly easy if your plate doesn't seal.
Also, Year/Make & Model of your motorhome is what ? good luck,
David G.

My coach is an '04 36MDDS. The tank wasn't leaking but abraded half way through. This should be the end of the problem. It sure does pay to do thorough inspections.

What does "MDDS" mean in English?? Is that Alpine code?

My black & gray tanks are inter-mingled kind of like this, but not at all accessible for much inspection of mounts, etc.

Richard, what Mfg. made your motorhome ? I as well do not understand the code MDDS, I can see it's probably 36'.

Thanks for the info, and the photo of your motorhome, what a nice unit. I think you have solved your problem, and it's great that it's easily accessable. Good luck,
David G.
