Remove furnace and water heater

I screwed up winterizing and the cold water supply line from the bypass valve to water heater burst. Replaced all I could access but still more. Looks like I will need to remove both the furnace and the water heater so I can replace the entire pipe. So how is the duct work connected to the furnace ? Does it slide right out? I've seen pics of a removed water heater but any pointers on it will be appreciated . FYI The furnace is located directly above the water heater and the bypass valve is in the bay immediately to the rear.

Which MH do you have?

Which Brand/Model of Furnace and water heater?

Generic answer
Flexible ducts are attached to discharge plenum on backside of furnace...hose clamped
Plus you have DC wiring to disconnect
Along with propane supply pipe
If you have outside access panel then furnace comes out that way
If just Furnace Inlet/Outlet vents...no access panel...then furnace has to come out inside of RV

Water Heater....
Hot & Cold lines/fittings have to be disconnected
DC wiring and AC wiring have to be disconnected
Propane supply line disconnected
Remove frame.....pull WH out
