How To Find Black Tank Replacement for FR trailers
Our son (who shall remain nameless) accidentally connected the city water hose to the black tank flush inlet on our 2015 Prime Time Lacrosse as we were setting up at the campground and turned the water on. Of course, the black tank dump valve was closed, which allowed to black tank to fill up quickly with fresh water to max capacity and beyond. I noticed the error just seconds before I heard a loud "pop" and the black water tank dropped partially down into the underbelly, destroying the black tank dump handle and who knows what else at this point.
The tank needs to totally be replaced. After we finished our scheduled stay, we took it to a nearby RV repair shop and dropped the trailer off, then drove 3 hours home. The shop has been working for a week to find a replacement tank. Apparently no one at Forest River knows what model black tank was used on our trailer. The RV technician says there is no model number or other identifying information stamped on the tank. He even drew a sketch with all the measurements for the tank and sent photos. FR said they still didn't know which tank went into the trailer. I looked at the Prime Time Lacrosse sales brochure for 2015 and it shows every model Lacrosse had a 40 gal tank, so you would think this wouldn't be rocket science. According to the shop, FR (specifically Prime Time) has been totally unhelpful throughout this ordeal.
Has anyone else gone through this process and if so, how was it resolved?
