Fresh Water Tank Removal

New to this forum and not sure what sort of tech people are out there so here goes my question, Has anyone removed teh fresh water tank on FR XLR 23? I'm looking to pull mine only to install some nuts and bolts for my Bike wheel mount which sits directly above and on the passenger side. I know man installed this tank afater the trailer was built but looking at it from the bottom can't see an easy way of pulling it out as it appears to be welded in with support brackets. If anyone has done this I'd sure appreciate the inside tips and tricks to getting this done.

Haven't done one of those, but have done several. If it looks as though the tank is sitting between two frame cross members, it is, in a way. Usually the rear one is removable. Look up at the frame, inside, and up on the vertical part for the bolts that hold the cross member in place. Don't forget about water lines, and make and mark your sensor wires, before removing them. You should have a large, 1 inch flexible fill line. A 1/2 inch suction line to the pump. Also a vent line, and maybe a drain to worry about. Helps to have two, even it doesn't weigh much when empty. Good luck, and Welcome
