Fresh water tank replace or repair

I have a 29' Nomad and the fresh water holding tank under the rig will not hold any water do to a hole in the tank. I need some advise on how I remove the entire tank so I can try repairing it. The problem is the tank is hanging on what looks like angle iron and there seems no way to remove the tank. If anyone has a solution please let me know I really want to repair or replace the fresh water holding tank. Thanks again for any help.

Straps are probably welded to the frame, the tanks are then installed when the frame is turned right side up before the floor is laid in place. Your best bet is probably going to be to cut the straps off, drop the tank. Being careful not to damage the line to the pump. Once it is on the ground your best bet is going to be to take it out, measure it up and go searching the internet for a replacement. If your RV is new enough you might contact the manufacturer and try to find out who make the tanks for them. Call the supplier directly and order a new one. Those things are not easy to repair. Once you have the new tank, go buy some new strapping, cut to length and bolt them back in place. It will require drilling some holes, but that is the easy solution.

Plastic welding

Might check in your area to see if there is someone that does ultrasonic welding of thermoplastics. There's several methods of welding plastics that may allow a repair without removing the tank.

There are patches nowadays that if properly applied to a clean surface, it will hold the dike water back.

So...If you can see, or even feel the crack/hole, a patch WILL hold.
