I am not positive on the 1985 tanks, however the newer black ones are ABS. Solvent weld compounds work on them.

If you cannot find out for sure, maybe try some solvent weld cement on a location that is not so critical. If it starts melting like it should, then your odds of a good repair are higher.

thanks john I was just wondering as the two tanks are different colors and I wasn't sure what they were. also it's odd that the blackwater tanks is grey, and the sink/grey water tank is maybe two different materials
