  1. yes i am sorry i forgot to say yes you will have to raise it . but also need it raised then you nee d a jack to raise and lower the tank. my freands have a farm shoup they had some masiv e heavy wood ramps i was able to put the rear tires on . used a big floor jack too lower and raise the tank i did not unhook it all the way just stuff hoses down from fill hole h ock on tank use new clamps .
  2. i have replaced the filler hose and the small vent hose .on my 87 dolphon . and previous 1978 minmax . in both cases the main filler hose was dry rot and craked . gas fumes inside rv could make a boom boom . shure was at the least sickning . no special tools do not use raderater hose gas will eat it out . that is why this neoprene fuel tank hose sold by the inch . not by foot bought mine at napa auto parts . the modern hose is better made . these tanks have drain plugs on the bottom . you need a good size floor jack .to loor the tank up and down . unhook tank unhook hoses from tank . unscrew
