A gray or black water tank that is cracked can be repaired by buffing area with sandpaper, using a layer of sealant like silicone on the area, then some synthetic cloth, another layer of sealant, more cloth, about three layers thick. I have had a repair hold for ten years with this technique. It also works for roof repair, especially where a fiberglass nose matches with the rest of the roof. For a roof, I use roofing sealant, but make sure to work it into the fabric.

Or you can get a roll of Eternabond repair tape and after cleaning off the effected area apply the strip of patching tape.

Ask Robin Williams, I believe he may have more experience with rental units.

Do you mean lost or "LOST"? Did it spring a leak or fall off and end up on the roadway?

One requires a trip to the hardware store, roofing supply or Camping World the other requires a phone call to the rental agency.
