Water leak

How do I access the water tank on my 1993 American Eagle 38J. I have a water leak when filling the tank and when the pump is on. Need to get to the lines on top of the tank.

If plumbing & tank similar to my Class C, hopefully the cure is under $2; mine had a cracked 1/2" MPT x 1/2" Barb PLASTIC ELBOW for VENT that some PO had piled PUTTY around instead of replacing. I took the opportunity to replace moldy vent hose and Fill hose (1-3/8"ID fits the 1-1/4" OD fill Barb, and I accessed in top of compartment containing water pump; THE other end of hoses accessed by removing fill port box. BUT, this would NOT explain the leak w/ PUMP running, so you may have a 2nd issue? Most FW tanks have no plumbing on top, but is rather on top of the END of tank, and BOTTOM of End gravity feed to pump? GOOD LUCK P.S. WHERE is your pump?

Well my good friend and I found my water leak It was the ice maker line in the basement right next to the water tank. That is why I thought it was coming from the water tank. We fixed that but something was still leaking found that the filter screen on the intake line to the water pump was cross threaded. Also found that the check valve for the water fill was sticking open so when disconnecting the water hose water would leak out the fill connection. Now no more leaks.
