leak under the grey tank??

OK so we've been boon docking for about 5 days now. We don't have a battery so we can't use the water pump for the sunk or toilet, so why is the leak under the grey water tank all of the sudden if we emptied it out before we left?

When hubby pulled the trailer out, the underbelly got scraped along gravel where the tanks are because half of the black tanks handle broke, but other than that, it seemed fine.

Is it because the grey water didn't empty all the way or is there an actual leak we have to repair? Or is it simply because the AS isn't leveled out all the way??

When you say a leak. Is it running out the waste pipe, dripping from where the tank is located?
Since the coach is a '79. It should have a grey water dump valve. Is that what is leaking?
More info please

If you dragged enough to bust one handle, chances are you had enough force applied to crack the system.
