Replacement 52 gallon black water holding tank

Hello, I have a 1999 Sandpiper 5th wheel. I need to replace the ruptured 52 gallon black water tank. How do I find out the tank model number so I can order it?

Thanks!!

When I had a gray tank replaced on my camper, the repair center opened the under belly and wrote down numbers that were literally hand-written on the side of the tank. I then found some internet site that had tanks. It was cheaper through them than what tbe repair center could acquire it.

So, first step- get eyes on the tank.

Hey there are some numbers hand written on the tank. Must be them? Do you remember how many numbers?

Apparently I emailed the service center photos. Hereís what I had (mind you, mine is a different camper and different capacity, these are for guidance only).

Thanks so much. I will check out the numbers on my tank and hopefully find a replacement online somewhere.
