I have looked over the threads but mabe I am missing something. Need some directions or help on replacing my blackwater tank. There seems to be a leak when it is full. When its full get some dripping on the ground out side by the frame. Have no idea if the tank is cracked or leaking at some gasket. I don't have any idea how to access the tank. I assume it from under the trailer. Any help or input would be greatly appreciated.

We have the drip when full in the grey tank, and an odd smell.
In order to remov ethe tank, you will have to remove the drain line from the back of the tank in the bumper compartment, it's pretty easy.
For the black tank on the rear bath, you would drop the belly pan enough to gain access, then you will find a bar made from angle iron at the rear of it. Support the tank, remove the bolts holding the angle iron in place, and remove th e angle iron. You can then lower the tank. Watch for the fittings, you don't want to damage them when you lower it.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
Mine is a center bath and its certainly not in the shape of balrgn. Since mine is center bath is the black tank mounted in a different place? There is a pan on the underside with a piece of angle in that goes under that pan. Do I need to remove that pan? Is the black tank mounted to a vent? How about the toilet will I have to remove it first? I don't see how I can access the connections with out lowering the tank. Also I don't have any connection in the bumper. Looks like there was a connection for the drain at one time. I have only had this trailer for a few months so I am still learning alot of things. Does anyone have any pics on this kind of repair. I have heard that you can't really repair these tanks. What are the made of? BTW thanks for all the input this is a great forum.
