I am unable to crawll into that space to get at it.
Is there any other way to access it or do I need to find a smaller person to do it?
Unfortunately you need to find a smaller person, as there is no other way to access those water inlet hose clamps to tighten them.

I don't have my Mahe anymore, but if I remember correctly you could possibly remove the blackwater tank in the head, and cut a hole in there to access from the inside.
Better to find a kid, should not cost more than some ice cream.

Re: Plumbing and Water Heater

I don't think there is any other way. I managed to get in but then i am only 6ft 1".😆
Once i got the anchor chain out the way i was just able to get in.
Getting a smaller person is the best idea.
