Atwood Water Heater GC-10A-4E

We have a 2019 Coachman Mirada Select 37TB. We need to replace the water heater element which is located at the back of the water heater. Our problem, there is no back access, as the unit is inside a black metal case under the flooring and can't access from underneath. Tried pulling the unit out from the front but only moves a few inches due to the water line connections and you cannot access the back at all. Any ideas how to get it out to access the heater element? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Not your particular model... but I did help with a Coachman water heater that was in a metal case mounted to the floor and the back panel of the metal case came off. It was hard to see where it separated but we finally found 2-3 screws under some sealer tape.
