I was stupid. Let me just get that out there.
I never knew how to properly drain my tank and last fall there was a sudden cold snap in October that froze my old bird with water still in the holding tank and the pump forgotten in the on position. It never leaked so I didn't even notice it was on. Needless to say, driving by it to check after the frosty night, it was pouring a steady stream down the access panel. I parked behind it, ran in and shut the pump. I drained it best as I could and winterized it. We pulled it out of storage last week and there is a hole in the tank! After removing the panel and shimmying the tank out as far as I could, there appears to be a welded section about 1 X 2" where it split open.
I want to know, is the tank dead? What does it look like on the inside and can I check if it was damaged there too? Can I JB Weld this aluminum tank or no? I don't think it's stainless, feels like aluminum.
Thoughts on welding or JB welding?
