checking for plumbing leaks..Allegro Bay

I have a post out there about "sputtering" water & air through my faucets (dry camping.) It has been troubleshot to possibly being a bad diaphragm on the shurflo pump, but I would like to check my tanks & lines for the heck of it. (...now confident after changing out the toilet seals and cracked vacuum pressure breaker...)

So, do I really have to take EVERYTHING off that water bay panel to get a look inside? If so, help! Or is there another way?

Thank you!

All of my lines are accessible and what I do is pressurize the system with compressed air. The simple test is that IF I lose pressure over a 24 hr there is a leak. I then use a soapy solution and check for bubbles. Good light and mirror necessary. For the occasions working wet and it not a gusher you can often find the exact leak using talcum powder, or dry antiperspirant which is mostly talc.
