Well I bought my first RV. I bought a 82 Elderado in stead of the Chieften. I have already found some problems. The hot warter heater is leaking at the tank (The guy I bought it from said it was welded once) so is there any cheap places ofr RV parts. Also my septic tank has a crack in it, It was repaired once with some type of repair kit. Can someone point be in the right direction on how to fix the crack in it.

Thanks a bunch
MIke
PS I will be asking alot of questions because I am a rookie

One used to be able to buy replacement tanks for RV water heaters, I have replaced a couple, years ago. If the rest of the water heater is in good shape, and you are pretty handy, that is one option. It is probably one of the older type, that has a pilot light, and those are very handy, as you can just leave it on 'pilot' and still have hot water, when you are boondocking, and not use up a bunch of propane ! You can't do that with the newer electric ignition ones.
As for your black water tank, our local RV store, www.camperland.net has some expensive, very thick, wide, aluminum-color tape, that they swear by, for fixing those ABS & PVC tanks. Our RV store sells it by length, or a kit is $34. It is kind of like the weather dam stuff that roofers use. For years, people fought with their cracked tanks , and tried fusing, glueing, and all kinds of remedies for them. This is supposed to work.
