Water system leak

I just picked up a 1998 Cardinal 28RKB this week. Overall the unit is in excellent shape for its age. When I went to fill the fresh water holding tank I noticed it had a leak. The water drains out at about the same pace as the drain to empty the tank. So I think it is a split water line between the tank and the pump from improperly being winterized by the previous owner.
My question is is the only way to get to the tank and the pump is to dismantle the entertainment/bathroom closet unit, or is there an easier way to get to it.

Not sure about that model, but all the other Cardinals I have worked on, you can remove the metal underbelly, remove a piece of angle iron, and drop the tank. Help to be on a cement pad and have a creeper. It may not look like it, but can be done.
