Hello, I have a 1996 Damon Ultrasport 3520 and have water leaking out of the side below the water heater area. I think it is probably nothing more than an open drain valve from being winterized, but can't find it.I have currently shut off the water going to the hot water heater with a valve under the cupboard so it's not leaking, but also can't get any hot water. I don't even know where the tank is. Do I have to dismantle everything behind the access plate? I'm a new RV owner and am having a great time but have a lot to learn.
Thanks

Hi Mike! Welcome! I waited a bit to see if anyone had a similar coach. I guess not so I'll jump in. The hot water heater has an outside access panel. Somewhere on the outside of your coach you will see a square sheet metal door. It hinges down. There is a small metal tab at the top that holds it shut. Open the door and make sure the drain plug is in. Now that you know where the heater is, look inside. It is probably under the bathroom sink...hopefully somewhere where it can be gotten to

Let us know how you make out...We'll help as much as we can.

Chandler

Don't know if there this will help. My hot water tank is located under my wardrobe closet next to the bathroom. Also when checking the drain plug check to see if the relief valve is stuck open.

Thanks for the advice, The weather is pretty stormy right now, but tomorrow morning I'm gonna check out your advice. I'll let you's know how I make out.
Again, this is a great forum. It's nice to talk to experienced RV'ers.
Thanks,Mike
