Angry Holding tank fail

We have a coachman 360ibl 2015 we were laying in bed and herd something. Went outside and water was coming from under trailer. The grey water holing take had fell off the track of angle iron it sits on. Pulled the 3 bolts in the sheeing underneth to better inspect and saw the rail in the middle holding both tanks grey and black was bent. Every sat we empty balck so on friday we close grey and use it to flush tank. Looking at the angle iron used looks like cheep steel maybe 1/16th thick. Will be calling seller tomorrow and figure out what there going to do to resolve this. Bad news is we are in the prosses of moving and this is our house at the moment. Im going to tell them when they fix it to use 1/4 thick angle. This should have never happend. Im upset that they would use sub par angle knowing water ways 8lbs per gallon.

Don't tell them your living in it. They will void your warranty, if you have one.

Well after talking with them they say yheres a 50/50 chance that they will cover it. I was smoking hot when he said this. They said this isnt the first time its happened. But while waiting on them i got both tanks back to original position. And added a good strap to secure them so they dont fall again. If they dont cover it a freind thats a welder will be fixing it. And knowing his work it wont happen again. All at the cost of a 12 pack of shiner bock

Put a piece of 1in square tubing inside of the angle iron with spot welds on mine. Did not have to change the ends to bolt back up.

50/50 chance of covering it? Maybe he said that because they haven't talked to Coachmen yet, and doesn't want to say anything 100%, that I understand.

Like someone said, the fact you're living in it doesn't help. So don't expect them to refund your "loss of living" or something like that, since it's an "RV."
