Hot Water heater

My father-in-law has asked me to sell his 1996 Itasca Suncruiser for him. It has been parked for two years. While checking the systems found that the hot water tank is leaking. He most likely did not drain it and it froze causing the damage. Since I'm trying to sell it does anybody know were I might find a used one to take its place or are the tanks replaceable.

I just replaced the tank on my HW heater. You can get one on EBAY for $190.00, including the insulation surround. It's wasn't hard to install. Eddie Elk.

I would spend the money and buy a new one.....shows the buyer that you wont sell a rig knowing that there is a problem with it.

Unless you can save a LOT of money with a used one, I'd replace it with new.
