Further investigation showed a bit of water leaking from the connection at a cold water fitting and the flexible hose that runs to the toilet. Now I can not see this fitting as it is buried under drain pipe and cable but I could feel the water there. The water was cold not hot? The HWH is on the other side of the MH...so why would turning on the HWH cause a leak from this connection...? I followed the guidelines to redo the air cusion for an Atwood HWH and that seem to stop the leak...I can not replicate it now...I am stumped. Any thoughts on this one?
water expands when it is heated in your water heater tank. this will force a leak in loose or marginal connections in the hot and cold water systems.
reestablishing the air gap in the top of the water heater will help by reducing the pressure as air is compressible while water is not.
my sink faucets will drip a little when the pressure gets too high.
