broken fresh water tank hose

In my 71 Tradewind I have a broken hose coming out of the fresh water tank. There is a small access hole in the floor, but it looks like a real knuckle buster to get at it. I am thinking it might be a whole lot easier if I cut out a piece of belly pan to get at it? Also the hose geos into what looks like a water filter? Can I move the filter to a better location?

Sail on silver girl. Sail on by. Your time has come to shine.

Marshall, As you have already noticed, the "hole" where the hose enters the fresh water tank has little access. I was able to install a new hose in my 71 without removing the belly pan. However, if you wanted to remove the pan, be certain of your point of entry as to not make a hole in the fresh water tank. The water filter can be located to another location. The factory located it where it is to save cabinet space I suppose.
