Many Thanks for all your help and sharing but I think I'm going to sell my Barth. I can't do the work on it and everytime I take it to a shop I get ripped off. I swear this is like getting my arm cut off. Hoverbug you have been very helpful and supportive and I appreciate it.I'll still post and read. thanks

I'm sorry to hear your getting rid of the Barth. I also understand the frustration you get from repair shops. But I had better not get started on that. If you have a tow vehicle perhaps you would be interested in my Ken-Craft. It was in good shape when I got it and since I have been completely through it. The interior is like new. Best wishes and always... Happy Trails!!

Ryegal, The miles are far between us but if you can answer a few questions maybe we can help. Can you see your water pump, how do you put in fresh water an where is it located on outside wall, can you see the tank anywhere in a compartment or under MH,you say its a class C there tanks were under the beds the ones I had, you have full bed or twins, do you have a tub or shower, are all walls thin inside coach. Tanks were usually in the heated area in class C's. Found a slide-in for my son for $100 an we restored it to working order new fridge, heat, water tank, brake & running lights, etc,etc. Its good to see your keeping the Barth. I'am sure we can come up with some answers. Does Barth web site have anything for vintage restorations, maybe a call to them to explain what your trying to do may catch their interest. "007"

If you can see the tank are there straps or blocking holding in in , if these are removed maybe you can slide out the tank to see where the leak is. You should replace all tubing anyhow because of age. You may also have to move sofa out of the way. Our water tank was between the built out step in the slide-in we rebuilt, tight fit but was able to remove an run new tubing to pump an fill up, after bleaching it out. When you remove something make note of it an where it came from, take your time removing panelling if you want to keep same or you will have hard time matching new piece with old panels. Lets find your leak than tackle the bath area. Let us know how your doing, having fun. "007"

Thank you all for your help. 007 yes I can see the tank. It is lodged under the sofa and fridge.Please go to barthmobile.com then go to barths for sale scroll down to 1977 class C and check out the pictures!! there is a picture of the water tank and fittings.Now that how I would like mine like that.Where you can see the connections.The owner is going to call me tonight .My class C has the coach door in front behind the passenger seat.I will get pictures this weekend of mine.Yes mine has the straps.Most of the guys from Barthmobile.com will tell you they think it is in a connection as those tanks are almost bomb proof.yes I want to put in all new tubing and I already have a new water pump.My Barth is not at my place so when you ask me a question I don't know when I go over and check it out or call the grandson.

Ryegal, Its possible you can pull out your tank an turn it around to always have access to your water pump an water connections.
Some good pics. May have to extend some water pipes but it would pay off in the long run. Not rushing you take your time after we get coach fix it willbe around longer than we will, your grandson will be using it. "007"
