Grey Water Leak at Fitting

Hello Airstream Experts

Tonight I noticed a leak where the black ABS pipe attached to my grey tank. There is a hose clamp that goes around the fitting but tightening it didn't help and repositioning the clamp and tightening didn't help either.

My trailer is a 2019 Serenity 28 and is under warranty but I'd like to know if anyone has had this same issue. Attached is a picture showing the leak.

Thank you.

I’m no expert so take with a grain of salt. The picture looks to me like the water is leaking above the pipe. The tank looks wet on the outside - is it or is that just an effect of the photo? Either way - as a 2019 you’ve got a warranty issue on your hands. Good luck!

I called my dealer the next morning, Pete's RV in South Burlington, VT, who is usually over 200 miles from my house but was located very close to where I was camping. Even though they were booked solid they fit me in and fixed the issue. Hats off to Pete's RV and their Service Manager!

The fix involved shortening the bracket that supports the discharge pipe, reattaching, and of course re-sealing the fitting that attaches to the flange of the grey tank.
