just put a hose clamp around where the little tabs are to clamp down and if it dont leak It'll hold.
Did you put a 160* stat in?

maybe you were overheating, plastic got soft?? if it snapped together , felt like it snapped in securely, then a clamp around the snappy part will be good.
but if you think it got really hot, and plastic was softening, figure out why...
did you reinstall the Tstat????
theres also supposed to be an o-ring in there.
make sure you refill your coolant, and check it, burp it, on the trailer.
is it warrantied???
if it is i would go to dealer explain what happened anddemand they order a replacement for you and install it.
but if not, its probably gonna be fine.

Yeah I think its just the plastic, when you do a t-stat mod by putting a 160* you have to pour hot water on it to soften the plastic to pull the cone out, I guess it did the same for you but with the heat of the engine,
Are you running the proper anti freeze to water 50/50?
