I changed the tank on my '80 excella in about 4 hours. Crawled under after setting on jacks. Biggest pain was reinstalling trying to stay out of the caulking. I don't remember how many bolts held the steel cover but 36 comes to mind. Dropped the steel cover and tank and replaced the fittings, and insulation, and back in place. Good luck

Our FW tank, ummm, slid out quite easily with a little push from a pry bar, ummm. Sorry to hear about all your troubles.

That aluminum floor looks awesome! I reinstalled my new ply basement floor with the help of a couple of scissor jacks. very awkward but it happened. Thanks!
