The size of the crack along the seam is about 2 inches. The tank is made of a PVC grade plastic. I am thinking of applying a marine grade epoxy then a piece of sheet metal with another layer or 2 of the epoxy again. However I have an extended warranty from Interstate National Dealer Services of Florida. My policy says it covers holding tanks so they should cover a replacement but they are trying to squirm out of it now.

Do not touch it then.

If it is pvc and they do not replace then try sprinkler pipe glue to see how it bonds.

It contains MEK that well allow pvc to disolve a bit making a better bond.

You will need to get some sheet stock.

Look in yellow pages for a plastics dealer as most larger cities have one.

They will be able to supply both sheet material and solvent glue or maybe do the repair.

Just applied a couple of layers of JB Weld to the crack. Cures in 1 hour so far no leak. Time will tell though. Thanks for all your advice.

These Eternabond instructions are for Polyethylene, would probably work for PVC.

Another vote for JB Weld. Better yet have your local RV repair shop fix it. The last thing you need is the poo tank leaking whilst driving down the interstate, or sitting at your camp site. Nasty business.

It s been a few weeks now and the JB Weld did not hold the poo back. I have scheduled a service call for a new tank.

Hi Ron,

With our tank service we have repaired many cracks. The other posts are all good ideas and if you can get to the crack with a putty knife you might try some good-old-black roofing tar. That is what we use and it dry's and bonds nicely. Put it on thick and give it time to dry before using the tank. Good Luck

JB Weld is good but I don't think it will stick to poly unless very rough. Another problem the tank is flexible, JB Weld is not very flexible. I would try the Eternabond tank repair in the above link.
