Removal of shower in a Marine Trader Europa

The hose goto the waste tank from my head is plugged and needs to be replaced. it runs right under the shower. In order to replace the hoses, it appears I have to pull up the shower unit. I believe the tank is good but the hoses are plugged. Has anyone pulled the shower unit up to replace the hoses? The hoses are the old ribbed hoses and they all have to be replaced. Any ideas? I was also thinking of going to compost. One thing is certain. I'll use fresh water in the new toilet if I replace the hoses. Any ideas on what to do?

Greetings,
Mr. b. Can you get a boroscope anywhere in there to take a look-see before you start "demolition". Might be similar to Mr. r's set up.
