Leak while filling water tank

We have a 2010 Puma 27 SBU. While filling the fresh water tank, I found water leaking out from around the hole that is in the heavy plastic around the tank drain and no it is not coming from the tank drain.
Two scenarios come to mind:
1: The filler line is leaking
2: The tank is leaking

To get at the tank you have to remove several cross members that are welded to the frame.
they only other thing is that beside the Power Distribution centre where the fill hose comes through the wall and then through the floor, it has been filled with foam. My plan is to dig the foam out and see if the hose has come apart or is split where it connects to the tank.

It appears that when the trailer was manufactured the cross members were welded to the frame. the heavy plastic or PVCwas put in and then the water tank installed and the trailer built around it.

I am not sure if I want to spend the $$$ to drop the plastic cover.

Any suggestions would be welcome.

Never enough camping!!

When I got my TT home I found 1 of the 45 deg plastic pipes going to the fresh tank/city water line had a hole in the bend. Leaked like crazy under the TT.
