Good Luck
X2 You have nothing to lose trying this one.

Yep, tried it once and it didn't work. I did use a torch and plastic from a milk jug to "weld" it together and it held for awhile but eventually started to leak again, so I ended up buying a new tank.

What is the capacity of the tank? The largest tank (30 gal ) from PPL is only $158.
You would need the dimensions to buy the proper tank but why even fool with a repair on a new trailer? Buy a new tank that will not fail you.
You will also need to figure what caused the original to fail so it does not happen again.
You can also google fresh water tanks for RV and get 1000's of hits.
