Kitchen Sink "flex line" broke off at top of gray tank...

For those of you who know us...April and I are doing well in PCB. Sold home it ATL on April 5th and now full time retired here. Not traveling much yet due to The China Virus. Also haven't been on the Forum much lately as there is just too much playing to catch up on. Golf carting everywhere, avoiding hurricanes and still cooking at home 100%. This place is swamped with people from all over the country totally oblivious to this virus. My current issue: As many have experienced, the "hard pipe" on top of the gray tank that connects the kitchen drain via a flex line to the bottom of the sink broke off just at the floor line where it attaches to the top of the gray tank. I was thinking of using a super duper gorilla type clear glue and just stick it back together but I only have one shot doing it that way. Anyone have any advise on this repair or how the plumbing schematic hooks to the top of the tank? Is the fitting on the tank itself replaceable from the inside? It's near impossible just to get to this area...much less, figure out how they put it together. I also need to work the slide in and out and find out what shifted and caused this.

Personally, I'd get some plastic epoxy and put it on with that. Bonds better than generic glues to plastic.

I'm also a big fan of epoxy...
Lots of it!

Though about doing just that...then just build up around the base with more and move out of the way what is causing it.

Same issue here on my 29h. I went to Home Depot, got a fernco coupling, installed it three seasons ago and been working since.
It also allows a little flexing when operating the slide.
