99 Tourmaster 8430 Leaking Diesel from Aquahot

Long time listener.. First time caller.

Looking at purchasing a 99 43' Tourmaster that has sat for a while. While most of the issues I have seen with the coach I can remedy and expect from a 20 year old coach. One I am not sure what it will entail and was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.

When inspecting the coach we turned the aqua hot on which fired right up and was running great. I then noticed that there was diesel leaking heavily from up above the top of the diesel tank in the middle of the coach. I am thinking there must be a feed line up on top of the tank for the pump that has rotted away. I am curious how you get access to the top of the tank. Do you have to go through the floor, or can you get to it if you pull out the generator? Maybe you have to drop the whole tank?

Trying to lock down a final price so needed repairs help bring the cost down.

Chances are that The original fuel lines of that era of coach are not compatible with the "New super low sulfur & Bio Diesel"
Plan on replacing all the fuel lines..ie: engine/generator/Aquahot.. not all that expensive but it IS time consuming..
