Get it repaired then bring the receipt to the manager and get paid either in cash or a credit for future tires. Hopefully you have the kid's name and statement. Either way, I think the manager should give you credit for future purchase. If he doesn't then go to the general manager and higher. I wouldn't let it rest.

I bet tire shops are having a hard time getting decent motivated employees these days. Was with my friend to pick up her truck. They damaged the wheels on the machine. I was polite but remember saying "we need some type of monetary compensation". Will have to ask but i think they gave her like $800 right there. Was a larger amount than i expected. Not sure if anything was filed.

It kinda stinks that it happened.
It stinks more that the AT manager is a doosh.
But like others said, it appears you’re talking about the gray tank drain hanging under the camper.
Should be an easy fix. If it’s after the valve, it’s not even totally necessary to fix if you have some grasssy area to drain the gray water if you can’t hook the hose to it.
If it’s gray/black combo , disregard that last statement.
Otherwise hacksaw off what’s broke, take it to the hardware store and get new parts for probably less than $10.

But depends why it’s a big problem. Is it busted back up into the trailer or busted off the tank? Or are you just not familiar with repairing pvc/CPvc pipe?

Thanks every one for your replys. I found a local Lic Plumber who said over the phone "I don't work on RVs" I asked if he would at least look at it. He looked at it and fixed it for $270.oo I think he jacked the price up when I said I was going to take it to Court
I called all the RV Repair places within 100 miles and none hardly had time to talk to me. One place said he would fix for $300 but I had to bring the TT to him. But it would be 6 weeks before he could do the job.
Lo and behold the Claims guy from Americas Tire called this afternoon and said send the invoice for the repair and he would send me a check
Maybe all is good after all. I am in my 80s and I cannot climb around under RVs like I used to. I was going to repair the problem myself. Glad I did not have to as it is 103 here today

Glad it all worked out in the end.

Yeah, pretty much a bunch of WAGs.
