Good luck. Hopefully FR will be able to help you out. Black waste is nasty.

This was the crack at the end of my black tank. Very tiny but very nasty

That's exactly what my gray tank did. It was caused by the line going into the tank being ridged and the top of the tank flexing. As the tank filled it flexes and the line coming in being ridged something has to give and it wS the tank. The cutout in the tank was to far in from the corner. They like them to be in the corner as that doesn't flex as much. At the diesel plant they showed me the change they made because if this. The use a flex hose in the line now to hopefully fix the issue. They tried to patch it twice but no way was that working. The tank needed to be replaced.

I did and he said the only way to get at this pipe is to cut the board out and replace it. I guess that is what I'm going to do or cut a hole and see what I can see. Thanks

My Berk is still under factory warranty, so I will have to take it in so they can do this. I will let them know that it has to be cut out.

This would have been very easy to design so that it could be removed and replaced. I wonder why they didn't do that?

Poor engineering but that engineer is no longer employed by FR, not that it helps much now.
