Followed those steps you provided but tank will not move. Seems as if there are other bolts holding it in place as it still has a solid feel to it

Is it rusted in place?

Thought it might be rusted in place, so we tried using a pry bar to loosen it. Something still has a solid hold on it.

Does it have a trailer hitch?
