Water Tank Replacement???

When I filled my water tank last night once it got to about 1/2 full it started leaking under the AS. Not what I wanted to see. it drained to about 1/4 and stopped.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Does anyone have a schematic or can they describe what I will see if I remove the panel below the tank?

The panel is a heavy piece of plywood. If I was to remove this is there any suggestions as to how? I believe it has swelled a bit since getting wet. I removed the bracket bar and tryed and I could barely budge it an inch. If the tank is resting on top of it then there is probably about a 100lbs of water resting on it.

Lastly, I am leaving on an 8 week trip in a week...Is this something I should even mess with or just buy water when we need it and keep some on hand for flushing when we are not at a campground with hookups?

Any other suggestions would be appreciated since I am sure I have not thought of all the right questions to ask.

Thank You

What year, length, etc?

Better yet, what's the serial number of the trailer?
