Unhappy Bummer, I think

1982 Pace Arrow, I drained the MH tanks from winter and washed them out a few times last weekend. Last night as I walked by the rear of the MH I noticed a small drip coming out of the Gray holding tank, where the drain is, I noticed that there is a hose clamp where it connects to the drain valve. I also noticed that there is a crack (I think) its a pretty straight line under the clamp. I have had this MH since last year and never had any leakes and I guess I never noticed the crack before but had seen the hose clamp. I tried to tighten the hose clamp but could only turn maybe a 1/8 turn (its hard plastic) it slowed the drip but didn't stop it.
Question is: Is that the way it was connected to the valve?
should I replace the clamp or try adding another one? I haven't been outside yet today (YES ITS SNOWING AGAIN) I left the heat on and the water heater going over night because they said snow so I presumed it would get down too 32 but when I got up @ 5:30 the TV guy said it was only 42 so I know it didn't freeze. any ideas?
Thank you Tim

I'd shop for some appropriate plastic weld repair and then remove the clamp, try to fill with the epoxy, and then reapply the clamp. If this drain hangs down so you can see it, perhaps water laid in the low point, froze, and cracked the drain at another time.

Thanks, I was wondering if Monster Glue would work? I also was told to try Eternabond?
