Thanks Rocky ...The problem is bigger than most people think we are getting about 1 to 2 in a week with cracks ranging from the top of the tanks to the bottoms and most right down the middle we were getting them warrentee from the dealers but not anymore.a company called clark is making them. And if your lucky you may get one before they sell out of them again.
