ACE 30.4 Water tank removal

Hello everyone, New owner of a 2018 ACE 30.4. Iím wondering how to remove the fresh water tank to repair it. I have a hole in the top of the tank, just below the electrical power center under the bed. Donít ask how I did that, Iím beating myself up pretty good right about now. 🙂 Was drilling through the floor to pull an inverter line in, not realizing the tank was a funky shape and extended into that area, and drilled right into the top of the tank. Luckily itís the fresh water tank, right?

Anyhoo, if anyone knows how to get the water tank out Iíd appreciate it.

Thank you,
Tim

Well, turns out it wasn’t that difficult to get the tank out. Had to remove the lower storage door and trim, then remove the bracket holding the tank in, reach your hands in an disconnect the fill tube and vent hose (this is where you cut the heck out of your hands reaching in) and then slide the tank out. There’s a nice little 3/8” hole in the top of mine. Will plug that tomorrow and reinstall. After taking the tank out I found the spot where all the electric cabling runs under the floor into the power center, so will run the inverter lines up through that. ����

Congrats on getting at your water tank.....any pictures you can share with the forum? It is always useful to see how someone got access to the inner sanctum of their coach.

I would like to modify the vent line routing on my fresh water tank (2013 ACE 30.1), but have no access to that side of the water tank. Removing the external water fill fixture would allow one end access only.

Sorry, but I didn’t take any photos.

FWIW, on our 2018 30.4 the air vent is located right next to the fill. Once I removed the storage door frame and tank support bracket, there was just enough room to tilt the tank down and reach on top of it to disconnect the vent hose and fill line.
