Default water heater replacement

Hi All
I have a 2004 class A gulfstream Ultra supreme. On my last trip we were sitting by the fire. all of a sudden water started coming out of the bottom tube right below the water heater. I pulled the relief value to make sure it wasn't something else. it wasn't under any pressure
When I got home and started pulling it apart. My Question is how do I get to the inlet/outlet water tube. I'm thinking since its below the flooring. I need to put a hole or pull out a wall somehow. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Jim

Can I GUESS that as you remove from outside, pulling the top out, you will be able to LIFT and pull the PEX up to disconnect?. You can probably remove drawers to SEE the inside plumbing? The RYOBI CAMERA PROBE MAY ALSO BE HELPFUL? ($59+/-) OR EVEN YOUR SMARTPHONE CAMERA/ VIDEO?

THenne,
Yes I pulled the outside door and flange. Can only pull the heater out so. I still cant reach my arm back there to loosen the fittings. the heater sits below the main floor. under the heater which sits on the floor under the frig. I don't see any access points from inside the motorhome. As matter of fact I do have a micro USB camera probe. I will try in a day or two.
Thanks for you reply
