Haven't had a chance to inspect the gray or black water. Does anyone know if they have the same issue?
That's all most exactly what mine looks like. My RV is at the dealer for repair now but I will take pictures of the repair and post them. I called the dealer today and they said the repair was approved (under warranty) and Rockwood was sending a replacement brace. If they send the same thing, I'm going to beef it up myself as I want to be able to travel with a full tank of water if I need to.
I did look at the gray and black water tanks and they look fine. They are taller and not as wide as the FW tank. I will keep an eye on those also but I don't think they are as susceptible to this issue as the FW tank.
The comments on filling and the plastic tank expanding is interesting. my hose doesn't go more than about an inch into the fill inlet however. If that is happening, that's another design problem as the vent is either too small or the tank is too thin and should not expand to the point where it can bend steel.
