Need to remove the gas tank on 1994 Fleetwood Bounder
i have a gas leak on the top of the gas tank. i need to pull the tank and repair it. it's 80 gal and about 1/2 full. i have been under the unit many times in the last few days. the bolts supporting the task itself are ok to get at, the issue that i am having is 2 fold.
1. i need to drain the tank of gas. 2.the fill pipe area right by the gas tank.
the inlet pipe is long and has 3 90 deg turns, i haven't tried to put a hose down but in my past experience it would be hard to get the rubber hose to make those turns to the tank, fleetwood put the pipe between the frame and the tank, there is a cover that the fill pipe goes through that joins the front and back frame, the front bolts are accessible but the rear nuts are not. the gas fill tube is metal up to this point and then there is a large rubber gas line about 2-3 inch od going into the tank. i need to figure how to get that small 2-3 inch entry gas line so i can empty the tank and it will need to come off to lower the tank anyway.. anyone have any ideas that could help me? unit is 36 feet
