Resolved Question:

I have an 87 Winnebago Elandan which recently I discovered a gas leak in the tank which is coming from the top middle of tank. Don't know if it is a hose connection on top or not as I cannot see this area of tank.

Thank you for requesting me!

Obviously, without seeing it, I can not say for sure where your leak is coming from.
But I can tell you from previous experience, that the most likely source of the leak is at one of the hoses, where rodents love to chew.

The best way to try and see where the leak is, is to get a small extendable extension mirror at an auto parts store, and to use a flashlight to look at the entire top of the tank.

If it is one of the hoses, you will need to drop the tank to replace the hose.
On a unit that old, I do not recommend splicing the fuel line - it is best to simply replace it.
After that much time, the fuel lines tend to either rot or get brittle, and the chances of another leak are great.
