Is the water heater on the rear of the trailer? My 2014 has a panel with 4 screws located inside the trailer that will access the water heater. It's probably the only panel held in place with screws.

The water heater has a 18" X 18" cover held on with a fastener that is on a spring. A portion of the cover will have air vents in it. You lightly pull the fastener and twist 90 degrees until the fastener fits thru a slot in the cover. The cover is hinged at the bottom. The cover might have the word 'HOT' stamped into it.

That's the outside.


To get to the back of the WH on the inside, there will be some panel covering it that needs to be removed.

It looks to me like you have to remove the louvred panel below the oven. The panel is held on by four screws, one at each corner. The screw covers are probably plastic. I have found that if you gently squeeze the plastic screw cover with pliers the top will pop out, exposing the screw head.
Once you remove the panel, you should have access to the back of the water heater with no problem.
