Are we looking at a screw driven through the pipe wall into the fitting to hold it together?

The glue holding the joint together doesnít look correct. Wondering if the piping was cracked when assembled and installer used some type epoxy in an attempt to glue it.

The crack is beyond the coupling

I just had the pipe going to one of my grey tank break at the fitting. All I can figure is there wasn't room between the pipe and the chase it was run in. You can see where the fitting was rubbing on two side of the chase when the tank moved.
Took me two days and several hundred dollars to get it fixed temporarily, till my new tank comes in with new fittings. I sent pictures to Heartland and let them know of the problem. Hopefully they will review how they install piping in my model of Bighorn in the future. Hope you fix is easier than mine.

Couple ideas. Perhaps the black tank has moved or sunk a bit on it hangers. Maybe somebody smacked the vent line while packing things in the basement.

The pipe was protected behind our basement wall, but the tank appears to be sunken in where the pipes go in. That may have caused the stress point. It is still under warranty so I will get it into the dealership for the repair. I have duct taped it in the meanwhile.

A closer look and I see itís just the rough edge of the crack. Looked like screw threads at first.
