Could you drain,and just drop the main support straps and get enough room to slip in the pump ? Mike
that's what I did. It was a tight squeeze and you still need to disconnect the fill tube and evaporation lines. If you cut the access hole bigger it would be even easier. Getting the screws on the pump bracket undone through the access hole was tight but I have small hands so it was doable. The the pump just lifts and rotates and one you get it out you push it forward across the top of the tank towards the axle.
