Looks like a freeze crack in your gray tank drain line. Cut it out, and add back a new section using rubber sleeves with screw clamps.
Or call Phil Swift.

Itís just standard plumbing pipe. If you are not mechanically inclined and know a local plumber they can easily repair it for you.

The black plastic is called ABS PIPE, a piece of proper size and two rubber boots w/ clamps should fix you up (common is 2" from gray tank, but some 1-1/2" (INTERNAL); I agree on FREEZE DAMAGE, IMHO. You MAY find other damage, hopefully not.... RV antifreeze is your friend.

Thank you so much I am pretty inclined mechanically that’s for sure, but I am kind of hesitant to do this myself as it could really ruin a vacation if this starts leaking. I guess Froster Freez would be the case. So do you think that this plastic ABS would be available at someplace like Home Depot if I measured the correct parts where would I go to get something like this. I am pretty mechanical. I am on the fence about getting this fixed professionally but if I do it, at least I want to know exactly what could’ve been done.

It's hard to tell from your picture if anything other the drain pipe had cracked and burst. If only the pipe is damaged you can get rubber sleeves/couplings with stainless steel screw clamps and a length of pipe to replace the split section. probably a 20 minute job with a hacksaw and screwdriver. Good luck to you!

The black ABS normally sold in 10-foot pieces, easy to cut w/ handsaw.

Well, that is excellent. This is one of the most useful websites I know, I am getting the confidence to do this myself, so it looks like Home Depot for the pipe itself. I will measure carefully both around circumference and length make the cut on the old pipe use rubber sleeves and four metal hose clamps.

You can most likely buy half-length pipe if you don't want any thing much left over. Also the pipe mender/sleeves/couplings should have at least 2, but sometimes 4 for the larger sizes, Stainless Steel screw clamps riveted to the rubber or neoprene sleeves. Good luck!

Those rubber sleeves come with band clamps and are known as Fernco fittings and available at big box stores. They even come w rubber lining & outer metal to provide lateral stiffness.

If they don't have the black ABS pipe, you can use white PVC.
Same size just stronger and costs more.

Just to clarify...the only reason one could mix the use of ABS and PVC is because the OP is *NOT* gluing these together, but is going to use two "No-Hubs" (rubber couplings) to join them. ABS and PVC expand and contract at different rates so never glue dissimilar pipes together.

OK, but they do sell a transition solvent to join ABS with PVC.
