Windshield washer reservoir replacement
My WSW reservoir just sprung a small leak at the bottom near the pump. Thought I would try to plug the leak and in the process of trying to remove the tank from the bracket, the entire tank just disintegrated into small pieces. The plastic on the pump's electrical connector also mostly disintegrated. The pump still works just fine. It appears that the plastic has deteriorated due to heat, although in 45k miles I have never had any heat related problems in the engine compartment.

Now I need to find a new washer fluid tank for my 2003 Pace Arrow. The part number on the tank is 080351-084 but other than an "ND" on the tank, I cannot find a manufacturer's ID anywhere.

Anyone know where I can purchase a replacement tank, either OEM or generic?

Denso was the manufacture who supplied Fleetwood. link below, they do not sell direct but may be able to supply you with a contact.

I had a Southwind and got a replacement reservoir at a local Camping World. It has been a couple of years but I believe all I gave them was the Motorhome model and year.

Any chance you could mount a bracket there that would hold a one gallon windshield washer bottle and just figure out a way to either mount the pump to the bottle or feed the pump with a hose shoved down into the bottle?

I had a resevoir that cracked on the road. My temporary solution (which worked so well I left it in place for a year) was to put an oven cooking bag inside it and filled it with AF. Held up perfectly (had to re-route the pick-up hose - no biggie) till I got to a Ford dealer and pried my wallet open. I got a 'deal' at $75. Could have bought a bunch of cooking bags for 75 smackers. And, no, the bag never melted.. It's made of hi temperature polyethylene.
