Customer Question
My gray water tank...

My gray water tank is falling off.

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make/model/year of your RV?

2017 Chateau Thor Motor Coach 22b

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

12,000 miles on Ford 350 engine

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

It got knocked out of the hanging clamps while entering a ferry. I reattached them. and drove 1200 mile home. That was in Sept. Now getting ready for a trip to Phoenix and notices leak from rear of coach. Went under it and saw it was unattached from "enter" waste line mand also fro top were shower drain attached.
