Getting behind the sink in an 83' Bigfoot 17ft

Hello! I popped a fitting on one of my lines near the taps in the back of the sink due to some early spring camping and freezing in the lines. Ive been struggling with trying to get behind the sink. I've pulled the drawers out and it still seems to be very difficult to get at. there is a vent on the outside that is above the fridge and slightly to the side of the sink I want to try but its sealed and would rather not tamper with it unless I know it'll help. I am in a bush camp so the fix isn't urgent but would definitely like to do it soon! Thank you

I had a similar access problem(different brand trailer) and found the best way was to pull the sink out. After that I had great access.

I have a 1986 BF 17. I removed the stove to get at plumbing under the sink. Remove top plate(snaps off) allowing access to gas disconnect. (Turn off propane) Then undo screws holding unit in place on sides when you open oven door. Then gently slide it forward being careful of gas pipe. I have done this several times with no issues.

Good luck!!

Being a plumber for many years, I would say removing the sink would be the best way to get to the plumbing connections.
