Onan Microlite leaking gas

I have a '85 Minie Winne that has an onan Microlite 2800 generator.
It is mounted under the floor.
When the generator is running there is gas leaking from somewhere.
I have checked the fuel filter and it does not seem to be leaking.
My question is how do I remove the generator so I can remove its cover and trouble shoot it?

I doubt if you would have to remove the generator to trouble-shoot it. They have a service panel that can be removed, giving you access to the various components. It could be a stuck float in the carburetor, which could cause it to leak.

I have removed the access panel but I could not see any gas leaking from the carburator or the gas filter.
I'm suspecting the gas line may have a whole in it or it may be lose where it connects to the fuel pump of the generator, I assuming it has a fuel pump.
