2003 Pace Arrow 37A access fresh water tank

Inadequately mfg.secured fresh water tank slid forward due to emergency stop, braking drain line and shutoff valve which I was able to replace with new parts. Water tank located aft of propane tank behind second storage compartment. This is the only visible opening to access water tank. The water line (leaking) from the tank to the demand water pump possibly damaged, most likely at water tank. Unable to locate access to this location. Tank situated between both frame members, surrounded inside frame members by corrugated metal I believe welded to frame. Demand water pump activated only draws air? Will I have to cut an opening in the interior floor to access tank. Has anyone any experience doing this? Any suggestions !

Suggest to give Fleetwood a call. Can't imagine there is not a way.

I had a fresh water leak last year, that I have spent a lot of time, trying to find the source. It leaked above my diesel fuel tank and I couldn't get above it, to see where the water was coming from. I thought I was going to have to drop the fuel tank, to be able to find the problem. However, this week, I made a greater effort to see above the tank, by opening the driver's side slide. When I crawled under the coach, I found an inspection panel above the chassis frame. I thought this could be the way, so I removed the screws and took the panel down. The second picture, shows just what I wanted....the water tank! Actually, there are 2 white tanks, inline and above the fuel tank. They are connected by a white hose, about 1 & 1/2" in diameter and fastened to the tank with hose clamps. Walla! I said "there's my leak"! One of the hose clamps was loose and dripping water!

So, I tightened the clamp, as tight as I could, replaced the panel and "NO MORE LEAKS"! Now, the square bar, that runs along side the inspection plate does not have to be removed, but it is a lot easier to remove/replace the panel if you remove it. Except for rusted bolts, it was easy to remove.

For the OP that initiated this post, keep looking and hopefully, you can find the inspection panel.

Tech from Fleetwood sent me schematic for PA 37A fresh water plumbing system. My MH only has one opening rear of second compartment drivers side. No apparent leak at water (2) tanks, replaced original gravity feed water line to demand pump with new 1/2" ID vynil nylon mesh re-inforced hose which I covered with pipe insulation. I had to run this line along the chassis frame, resolved problem. Thanks for all assistance offered. RVBobcat
