Water Heater floor rot.
As part of my rebuild I am installing all new appliances. The fridge arrives tomorrow, the water heater I already have (except for the mounting) and the furnace is on my to-do list. So today, I decided to pull the water heater, that was fairly uneventful, so I pulled the furnace too, also fairly easy.
Underneath the water heater, the wood, plastic and carpet the floor had been wet for so long the chip board had turned to mulch! I literally scraped it out with a garden hoe. The plumbing had been leaking forever, and the way it was constructed you can't see the wet unless you take it completely apart.
Now, that I have pulled the kitchen out, the entire floor section is wrecked. I didn't post pictures because I didn't want to scare anybody.
If you have an older coach and the inclination, check under your water heater! My coach was completely dry before this!
