Aloha and welcome to the forums. Others will chime in on the tank removal details. My experience tells me that tank replacement occurs from below. Show us some pictures of the renovation. Again, welcome.

Yep, this work is done from the bottom. You'll need to remove your belly pan and the insulation around the tanks to get at them. I've never had to drop the tanks for maintenance but others here on this forum have.

While you wait for responses I would do a search for waste and fresh water tank repair and or removal.

Best of luck. At least you have a good helper there.
