Fuel pump in 99 Holiday Rambler Vacation

How do I replace the fuel pump in the gas tank without dropping the gas tank? Can I cut a hole under the bed and get to it that way? Someone help me out, Im stuck in Baja Cal and can't get towed, And to drop the gas tank It seems like the Jack system has to be taken off.

Sorry, I'm not familiar with the layout of your RV. How about putting an in-line pump underneath to feed engine until you get back to where you can drop the tank? Only issue I think would be if the failed pump would restrict fuel flow.

You don't say what chassis you have, Ford ? I did a lot of measuring before I cut the hole in the floor. The fuel pump on ours turned out to be about a foot outside the bed, the only problem I encountered was the heating duct runs down the middle of the coach and I needed to cut through it also.
After the "access door" was cut it took about twenty minutes to actually change out the pump. Being as our HR is on a '91 F53 chassis I also had to upgrade the wire shunt that plugs into the new pump. If I remember right the pump was about $350 and the wire shunt was $25 from RockAuto.com.
