Default Ultra 27' water tank remove question

We just bought our 1st RV.
GS Ultra 27'.
The water tank has a problem, and was bypassed, and pump removed.
I can't see how the tank is held in.
Also, was the pump mounted under the sink, or in the compartment with the tank?
Thanks you any help.
Also any good supplier for a tank, if it can't be fixed?
It's 6"x28"x60"
Thanks again

Sorry, I'm no help. Just curious Why they needed a pump if there was no tank? Should have just operated on incoming pressure.

Works fine as long as the hose is hooked up.
We are a bit more adventurous, an need water, without a hose.
I guess they removed the pump, when they removed piping from old tank.

Ours is next to the tank. I added another pump near the sink, dedicated to a separate faucet with two separate tanks for drinking water. I like our drinking water totally separate.

Got the tank out. Needed to remove compartment door, frame. Nothing seemed to be holding it in, except some stickey goo, from the tape someone put over the 2, 3" cracks.

Welding rod arrived today. some more practice, welding a recycle container, and I will attack the tank.

The bay, the tank slides into, goes under the kitchen floor, which seems to have a bit of flex. The bay is about 36" wide. No wonder the floor moves a bit!
There is about 4" of room on each side of the tank.

I'm thinking of cutting a couple of 2x8's down to slide in on each side of the tank, for floor support.
