I tried that as well but it seems even with the connecting bolts off i dont have the room to tip it over with out putting strain on the cables :(

The manual shows how to unclip the fuel hose

There is a lil black clip pop that off with a tiny slotted screw driver, the red clip pulls out, then there are some tabs you squeeze while pulling the fuel hose off
Be gentle use a flash light lay a couple rags down and have someone hold the tank on its side while you do it

The electrical clip is a standard squeeze and pull deal small vice grips with GENTLE pressure work great if your have fat fingers

With all things breath in the the nose out the mouth Good luck
