Drain line Cracked!

Was putting up the camper top and heard a loud crack!

Later on I was running the water and the wife said it was leaking... went outside and found this crack...

How easy it this to fix? I have a one year check up with the dealer on May 4th, should I have them to a look at then? Is a warranty issue perhaps? Looking at the pipes they seem to be about a 1/2 to 3/4 inch out of alignment.

Can you tell if the tank moved and if so which way.

Also check for broken braces for the tank.

This is a 2016 HW27KS. I bought it last July/August or so. I believe this PVC tube feeds into the gray water line, I could be wrong though, haven't looked/mapped out the system under neath yet. I thought it may be the pipe coming from the reserve water tank system since it appears to be a holding tank below where the fill up is on the passenger side of the camper.

I can't tell if the tank has been bent or moved, will look tomorrow when it's light out to see if there are any braces that appear to have come loose.

Appreciate the advice that this is a warranty repair. Can you guys elaborate on what the problem is exactly? I think my dealer is all right, but what if they try to say it's my problem?
