Black Flush left on! how much is this going to cost?

I cracked my black water tank by letting the black water flush run un-attended. (Big mistake!) I have cleaned up all that I can and now need to get the tank replaced. Any idea of what this is going to cost? I have a service agreement and am not sure if this will be covered. Any input would be helpful.

Just out of curiosity, how did that crack the tank? guessing you had the flush valve closed??..I would think it would have just backflowed out the toilet or vent?...

Also unclear how it would crack, I mean if it was air tight, which it should not be it could expand and crack I guess but I never new these to be that tight.

Regardless, you may want to leave out that you left the black tank flush on and the valve closed, just go with the tank cracked and let them figer it out on their own.

As for cost I thought I read a thread where it cost close to 900 for the tank and labour.

The tank well crack as it swells up when filling. The tank moves but the line coming in is ridged so something has to give. They are now butting a flex hose on the in line to help with this. I had this issue with my gray tank and it happened at the FROG rally. What luck. FR replaced it free. Have I said FR rocks lately.
