Good question... I've never done that,, but if I did I would think a semi soft rubber mat,,, just a bit of cushin under the tank,,, but won't hold moisture, as in if the tank sweats.. Nice looking rv you've got by the way !!! resembles ours a little...

Why are you wanting to add padding? That might help I get you a better answer. My heater is propane, so mounts to the frame and outer skin. It floats above the floor. Additional insulation is never a bad idea for dead space as long as you maintain the clearance required by the water heater mfg. typically these have a soft wrap and you don't want to compress that and lose it insulating properties. Maybe a photo or two to help us out?

I would 2nd what Monkey said about putting a rubber mat, I would get a runner that they sell at places like Home Depot ect. you can buy it by the foot, that way if it did sweat it would have a chance to evaporate.
