I hope you have already drained the tank to prevent any more leakage. Water can quickly migrate to places where it will start the rotting process on cabinets and sub-floor. Dry up whatever water has already leaked out, and do whatever you can to insure that any wood near the leak is completely dried out.
You can improve your access to the tank by removing the stove.
(Click here for general instructions for removing the stove.)
Also, remove any drawers and doors in that cabinet group.
My tank holds 25 gallons and measures 12" tall, 12" deep, and 41.5" long. Your tank is supposed to be 24 gallons and should be roughly the same dimensions. If all the fittings are disconnected, you should be able to lift that tank right out through the stove opening.
I am guessing that the pump is in the same compartment with the tank. If so, disconnect the tank/pump line at the pump so you will be able to locate the leak when you've removed the tank.
As John said, if it is just leaking at the fitting, removing the fitting and re-installing it with fresh teflon tape should work.
It is also possible that the clamp on the hose just needs tightening. That clamp may be a crimp-on instead of a worm clamp. You can't tighten the crimp-on, but you can remove it and replace it with a standard worm clamp (readily available at your local hardware store or home improvement center.)
If the unit wasn't properly winterized sometime in the past, the hose itself may have split. That is also easily replaced.
