We took out our 1979 mobile scout. My husband replaced all the bearings and welded a new hitch and we put new tires. We took it to the coast Went fishing in Rockport Texas and we found out everything works. The air conditioner is great. The only problem we encountered was the water tank leaks.  It is very easy to get to. and it is made out of plastic. It is a soft plastic not the ridged type of plastic. Can that be repaired and with what? By the way he landed a 40 lb golden drum! He was very happy. I just relaxed. Will post pictures later

Turned out my tank wasn't leaking. It was a hose clamp that I missed twice while looking previously. Simple fix if I wasn't tall and old and could fit in under the sink

Thank you all so much for your replies I will try and find the products you recommended and try which ever one I find. I love this web site I get to talk with  people that really know about travel trailers. Everyone replied very quickly. I have very little time to really go out and work on our trailer, I baby sit my great-grandson and have an alteration business and a elderly father (age 82)  I am the only one living here my siblings all live out of town.  So you have saved me so much time. If I had to research  this by myself. I would have taken me much longer so again thank you very much for your response!

The tank is probably polyethelene, and as such can probably be hot glued with poly- pro hot glue which can be hard to find. Polyurethane hot gluee will not work and is far easier to find (craft store stuff). Typically much higher temperature requirements is the only indicator (Home Depot)

I had a leak in one of my grey water tanks from it being abraded by one of the steel straps that secured it to the frame. After calculating how long it would take to remove, I opted for a piece of Eterna bond tape. I drained the tank, cleaned the leak area completely and wiped down with denatured alcohol, then pressed on the tape and let it sit overnight. It has not leaked in three years.

That's a good question. Mine is leaking too. Don't know where but I think it's on the bottom as I do t see anything coming from the pipes. Congrats on the fish! I got a alumalite class c holiday rambler.1988 always something to tinker with.
