Sanibel Grey water tank dropping

Our 2015 Sanibel 3251 has been very trouble free but have an issue with the grey tank for the bathroom shower and sink dropping out of it's mounting brackets due to the cheap light front angle iron bending down from the weight of the tank when getting full. The only thing holding it was the plastic underbelly and we noticed it sagging big time and ripping out at the screws. It's lucky it didn't end up on the highway somewhere. Anyone else had this trouble and whats the best fix for it.. I recommend everyone checking their mount too for this tank. The angle iron is welded to the frame that's also supports the fresh water tank which is held up by a couple cheap straps. I'm considering just putting a heavier piece of angle iron on top of the bent one and hoping for the best.

Just one more thing I want to add before someone asks is this happened while sitting stationary in a park all summer. It has never been towed anywhere with anything in the holding tanks other than now when I discovered the tank hadn't drained because the drain pipe was tilted down away from the drain pipe. Luckily I ran a couple ratchet straps underneath it before I towed it home.

I had the same problem with the greywater tank mount and ended up installing an angle iron support under the cheap light front angle. No issues since.
