Fuel tank float gauge 2002 Winnebago Journey

I have a 2002 Winnebago Journey 36 dl. The fuel tank is full and the gauge reads empty. It has been fluctuating for the past 1500 miles or so. It would do ok between 3/4 and 1/2 tank but when it got to 1/2 tank it would go close to empty.
I would pull over to fuel and it would only take 22 to 25 gallons. then would only show 3/4 full.
Finally the other day on a short trip it went to empty and will not move.
I filled it so I know its full.
My question is how to get the float out of the diesel tank? looks like it is on the top of the tank, do you have to drop the tank for access?
On a side note when I turn the ignition on I see a slight movement in the dash gauge so I'm thinking that is working.

Several years back mine didn't work for a couple of fill ups. I kept track of the miles traveled and filled up every 400-500 miles. The gauge come back to life after several trips and has worked ever since.

Before dropping the fuel tank I'd give it a couple of fill ups and trips before spending a lot of money. Good luck.
