If the line leaking is plastic then it's not a brake line it's a fuel line. If the truck runs then it is most likely the return fuel line. If you can't get to it without dropping the tank then that's what you'll have to do, but you shouldn't need to remove it completely.
It is best to siphon out as much gas as possible. Before you removing the bolts take 2 pcs. of smooth fence wire or even 12ga. copper wire and make a cradle to support the tank, cut the wire at least 2 ft. longer than what it will take to go from the frame to the drive-shaft.
At a point about 1/3 in from each end of the tank lupe one end of the wire through holes in the frame and twist it a couple of times, then run it under the tank and around the drive shaft and twisting the ends a couple of turns.
After you get all the bolts out of the tank supports if you don't have room to repair the line you can loosen the wires around the drive-shaft and allow the tank to drop down some[this is why you need the wires 2 ft. longer]
After the repairs which will probably be replacing the rubber fuel hose that attaches the line to the tank,[I'd replace both of them] tighten the wires around the drive-shaft and replace the tank bolts. Remember to get all your bolts started before you tighten any,

I have been a mechanic for 15 years and have worked on alot of motorhome fuel pumps. 99 percent of the time it is the fuel pump that is bad. if you are getting power at the fuse you more than likely have a bad pump. I understand the thing about the hydraulic jacks they are a pain in the ****. sorry I can't tell you an easier way.

SOURCE: 1999 Durango brake line leak
I have just done this job with aftermarket brake lines in three pieces, two 40" and one 30" joined by unions. I did not take the tank down, it is possible to reach the clips holding the brake line from the top reaching in with your fingers from the outside reaching over the frame. Make sure to have good light and a flashlight at hand. Above each clip holding the electric cable run you see next to the tank there is also a slot (in the same clip) for holding the brake line. I used the two long pieces in the rear and slid one in place, then joined it with the second one the short piece I used to do the final bend up to the junction block. The uninon for that one to the other two conveniently ended up right behind the front most clip holding the brake line and the fuel line to the chassis. I am not sure if I saved time or effort doing it this way I just shyed away from bringing down the tank as all I jacked up the car with was drive on ramps and there was not much space under it. Also the brake line did not conveniently burst when I had an almost empty tank to handle but the other way around...
