Hi Guys

Can I drop the tanks out the bottom by removing the 2 pans at the mud and rear of the trailer?

Thx!!

Yes, the gray and black water tanks will be under the rear pan. Fresh water tank in the middle pan.
Make sure the tanks are empty before dropping the pans. Then you'll have to disconnect the plumbing.
For the fresh water, disconnect the fill and suction lines from inside the trailer first.

Look long and hard at the gray and black piping to figure out how to get it apart without cutting the pipes apart. It may be difficult but should be possible. A good starting point is to unbolt the drain valves.
