What is the matter with yours?

Many of the tanks leaked on the weld next to the drain plug, which can be repaired. This was prevalent about 10 years ago on 2006-2008 Monaco coaches.

Of course, your issue maybe completely different.

With boats we used to cut an access hole in the top to allow cleaning then make an inspection cover with gasket to cover cut out, not sure if this will help with your tank, there is also a liquid if you remove your tank that you can pour into tank to seal rusty bottom.

I'm almost sure my tank is aluminum actually I thought all Monaco tanks were
aluminum .
Try a magnet , see if it sticks .
I would hate to see you buy a tank and find the problem is something else .
Bad fuel can cause a world of filter problems .

Tell us more .
Is the coach new to you ?
Has it been parked for a long time ?
When did your filters start stopping up ?

My fuel tank is aluminum also, which means no rust from the tank.

Just a thought, Wonder if your problem is algae and not rust, algae was a common problem with diesel boats, they would sit for periods of time and when under way the sloshing fuel would wash the algae off tank walls and plug filters.
