Update. So, the repair went well, and I let it sit for 2 days empty. JB Water weld, as suggested, worked good. I filled it Friday night, and let it sit till Saturday. No leak. So, I took it on a little 60 mile road trip as I had to go out of town anyway. Some bumpy back roads, some highway. Still, no leak! So, lets hope this took care of the issue. Thanks for everyone's help!

My bet is the problem is over. Good job on seeking advice and doing the repair yourself. You saves yourself some repair bills and have the satisfaction of the job well done.

If it leaks again, fix it again.

On a trip to Alaska last summer we stopped to refill water in Whitehorse Yukon and then pulled into the local Walmart and watched as all the water drained onto the parking lot. 10,000 miles living out of 5 gallon water jugs. Repair upon return home $1300.

I did the same thing. Had what sounds like the same crack as yours. Were on the road full time and I didnt have somewhere I could drop the tank to replace it so I figured Id try the JB water weld and see what happens. Going on 4-5 months with no leak! Good luck!
