Grey Water Tank Fell Out on Road

Thor Freedom Elite 22HE, 2019, somewhere between Dayton Ohio and Indiana Border the Grey water tank broke and fell on Highway. It could not be retrieved.
What is best way to replace and get repaired ASAP?
Had trip planned in 5 days.
Thank you

WOW... a 2 year old MH?? I'd probably do Amazon Prime and a self install... if you have the mechanical ability. That's going to be a squeeze! Did you encounter some of the "high quality" highways Ohio has to offer? Had to take quite a hammering to break loose!

What caused it to drp?
Getting and installing a replacement tank in just 5 days is a tall order: good luck!

Oh! Welcome to the forum also; although I wish it were under better circumstances.

Is the tank damaged or just fell out?
If undamaged all you need is whatever type of adhesive to reattach the piping & a more secure way to secure it back under the rv.

Did you know that the same guy who played "Lurch" (Ted Cassidy): also played "It"?
and that he would sometimes switch to Southpaw: just to see if folks were paying attention?

I was crawling around underneath my 2017 FourWinds 24F and noticed that the clip to secure the black tank up to the floor totally missed - never was touching the tank!! Took it to GeneralRV and asked them to repair it under warranty which they did . I seldom travel with full tanks; that would have terrible mess ... let alone have a tank fall off as you're traveling down the road.

you guys are confusing "it" and "Thing" (Addams family)
Cousin "IT" was a very short, hairy creature that had hair to the ground.
The hand in the box was "Thing".

Its sad that someone came to the forum looking for help and their thread has been hijacked and morphed into an Adams family joke.

I see this same scenario in most threads on RV forums and I can only assume or guess its people with nothing better to do than stick their 2 cents into a conversation they have no business getting involved in.

Sure would be nice if only good valid information was shared !

If you read the original post you will notice, I believe, no help was asked, he was stating that it had fallen out. Like so many posts here, they go on forever with absolutely no value to the original poster because he probably already has the problem fixed or he's moved on.

Just my opinion.

Not looking for an argument, but as I read the post, I believe the OP was asking for help or advice.
