A friend in our park has a 1998 Bounder with a leak somewhere either in or behind his Atwood 6 gal.tank.He has removed all the screws around the outside that hold the tank in place but the tank won't budge.Any ideas on what he's missing????

If it's anything like the Atwood tanks used in Winnebagoes, there's a whole bunch of black dum-dum putty (actually butyl rubber caulk I think) behind the metal perimeter flange. Gotta pry on it with a putty knife...
