Help with holding tank leaks.

I have a 28 ft 1981 Excella motor home with a rear bath. Both my holding tanks have developed leaks in the bottom of the tanks.
Does anyone know where I might get replacement tanks?
What alternative way are there to fix the problem?

Thanks,

Bailey

Hello Bailey,

My approach would be to investigate the cause of the leaks first. It might be a fitting, or drain port.
Depending on the material used, sometimes repairs can be made to the tanks. Plastic can be welded with the right equipment, and fiberglass is also repairable. I imagine that Airstream could supply new tanks, if no other of the shelf tank fits.
A good source for generic tanks is Ronco Plastics, or Plastic Mart
