Thumbs down leaking attwood wh

I have a 2005 monaco knight with an attwood water heater that is leakingAll fittings are dry and I replaced the electric element and gasket. System holds pressure at 100 p.s.i when no demand of water. Cant find the leak. Have been searching a month. rv repairmen cant find it. Maybe a cracked tank? I guess I should just replace it at a cost of 1,000.00.It still works fine though.Any help out there would be appreciated.

If it holds pressure than the tank itself plus the inlet & outlet sides must be ok. Or did the pressure test isolate the tank from the rest of the plumbing?

Where are you finding water? If the tank were cracked, the insulation would be wet (and the pressure would fall fairly quickly too).
