Black Tank Crack
Over the weekend I discovered that my 2013 Sabre 32RCTS fifth wheel, which I purchased new in July 2012, the black water tank has a crack of several inches. It leaked into the covering under the trailer before I was able to determine that it was leaking. I had an RV repairman come and he was able to see a crack of several inches but did not have any material to fix it in the campground.

This is the first major issue I have had with this unit.

Has anyone else had a similar experience and how were you able to fix it?

Thanks for any suggestions or recommendations.

black tank crack
I had the same problem with both the black and grey tanks in a 2013 palomino columbus 5th wheel, I pulled the belly pan off and repaired it with a U tube repair ,using black ABS cement combining shavings from a piece of abs pipe, drilling holes at the start and end of the cracks,the web site is Trailer for the complete repair instruction video,
