Grey Water Tank Replacement

I have a gray water tank with a crack that can’t be repaired that I am having replaced at the local RV dealership. The manufacturer (Escape) is supplying the exact match tank.Does anyone have an idea how many hours it would reasonably take to do this? The manufacturer says it should only take two hours – the RV dealership says more like four. Anyone with experience with this would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks!

How about agree to a hard money contract at (3hrs Maybe)
It took me about 3hrs on my Scamp but that's apples and oranges and I'm a slow old man in a home shop.

Thanks for the perspective- I watched a YouTube video and thought 3 to 4 hours for a non-factory repair shop not totally familiar with connections etc would be realistic. Hope others weigh in with their experience - either DIY or with a repair shop.

When I repaired the gray water tank on my Scamp I found a few more problems than I had anticipated. Specifically the support for the outlet valve was in poor condition and coming up with a repair for this took more time than fixing the problem with the tank.

The point is you don't know what sort of unforeseen difficulties you might encounter until you are well into the job.
