Kitchen Sink Water Leaking Underneath Nuwa Snowbird

I have been full time living in an owned 5th wheel for 3 years now and have a plumbing situation with my 35 ft 1994 nuwa snowbird legend.

My kitchen sink was clogged and I used a plunger to see if I could fix it. It did fix the sink from clogging, but now the water drains underneath the unit and there's a bad smell that comes inside the rv.

I removed the cover under the rv and I'm seeing where it's leaking from. It's like another cover that a pipe goes into. I don't know what I'm looking at because I'm a newbie with repair anything. However, it's better if I try to diagnose and fix things due to my financial situation.

Has anyone had a situation like this? I can take better pictures to help people understand what I'm talking about if these are bad. I don't want to get in trouble for dumping water in the park I'm at.

Thanks for reading.

That looks like a split or cut to the tank. It will have to removed to either repair or be replaced.

I think you're right. It's looking pretty complex to take off.

You can repair a leaking water tank?

I'll say a "qualified yes" but a good repair would probably require removing to make sure it's done correctly. Someone with more knowledge on this should come in as to what materials will stick and repair a tank. Otherwise a dealer can order from the manufacturer a replacement. Probably won't be cheap though.

Maybe try that stuff 'Flex Seal'. It fixes any leak. At least it fixes it temporarily. Oh oh, Flex Tape might work. At least it does in the commercial.
