Well folks, I hate to disappoint and not be able to document my black tank removal but...........
When I got off work it was almost 50 degrees so I decided to do some investigating and thought I found a way to take it off without tank removal. Lets just say it took me 4 hours, really sore arms, 10 new cuts on my hands, and a lot of patience but the stupid filler hose is off!
Just as I suspected, it is jammed in there so tight that it rubs on a piece of angle iron causing the hole in the second picture. Now I need to either figure out a way to route it differently or protect it better.
Thank you for everybody's help and advice! It is always greatly appreciated!
