Accessing the black tank on an Escape 21

I need to make a plumbing repair on the pipe leading from my blank tank. I intend to remove the plywood covering the tank by removing the screws then lifting it out of the way. Will this work, or is the plywood also glued down? Anything I need to look out for? Thanks.

Are you referring to the bed plywood?

You can remove the plywood bed platform by removing the screws IE The plywood platform is not glued . I have removed the plywood bed platform in my 21 on several occasions
One of the times was to repair the black tank connection to the ABS black tank drain pipe .

Yes, I'm referring to the bed plywood. Thanks Steve-- that's what I wanted to know. Just checking to make sure before I do it.
