Could be a simple need of a little Vulkem sealer in the right place.

Thumbs up Welcome aboard

Not a difficult repair at all, clean well get all the old stuff off and use a good quality polyurethane sealer. While up there check everything else with sealer around it. Ask me how I know?

This repair is the black tank vent, which the factory saw fit to leave half the screws off of.

Thanks for the info, I plan to take a look this weekend if the weather allows. I have a temp cover over it until then.
