Removing Fresh Water Tank

Hello, I need to replace the floor under the fresh water tank in our 1975 Argosy, it is in the front under the gaucho, but I don't have an owners manual. Does anyone know how it is fastened down? I would think it might have bolts through the floor but don't want to take the belly pan down if not needed. Thanks Marvin

The ones I have seen were all taken out from inside the trailer, mine included.
Pull the Gaucho and all will be reveled.

Gary, That was the first thing I did, but can't get it to move and don't see any way it is fastened to the floor.

fresh water tankkkkkkkk

here goes
Upon testing onboard system I seam to have a leak someware!!
After narrowing down the location, there waz no choice but to pull the fresh water tank. onea those-- gotta do it, aint gonna do itself!!
after crawlin under 4 or 5 times I got to it, the tank sits bout 2" lower than the rest of the belly pan forward of the axles. you stand right above it when working the stove.[on a 73 inter 31"]
It is supported by a piece of 1'' plywood witch in turn sits on four 1.5" pieces of steel that I'll call a Z-bar. The forward Z-bar is just bolted on both ends and the others are welded fast to the frame. I cut the bolts off and the bar fell....
the plywood was covered w/aluminum and was sacrificed to the "stream gods"
So not to kill my self I put a 3/8 bolt thru the exposed plywood side and hooked up a comealong to the safety chains of the TT.




the last pic revealing the burst pipe!!
you must remember when pulling plywood out cut two pieces of wood bout 12'
and stick across the two rear corners under tank to hold it up. I also cut a 1x1 57'' to hold up the front of the tank whilst wrestling w/plywood. just for ha haz the plywood weighd 62lbs. tomorrow I fix the pipe.
