2016 35K Water Heater Hoses

The electric element of the water heater stopped working recently. When I went below the RV to check things out, I noticed that both hoses going into the water heater are leaking at the fittings (looks like bad fittings versus leaking via the threads).

The water was leaking into the electrical box where the heating element is.

I'd like to replace those hoses. Anyone know where other ends of those hoses are connected?

Are you talking about the plubming lines??
Bottom fitting is COLD Inlet to the water heater
Top fitting is the HOT Outlet to the RV Hot plumbing lines
Any line connecting COld/Hot would be 'Bypass' line


OR are you talking about the Engine Coolant Lines to water heater tank?
Some units have an optional 'motor aid' that allows Hot engine coolant to flow thru WH tank and heat the water while driving
Engine coolant lines FROM and back TO engine

The water system plumbing that taps into the water heater use hoses that are similar to what is connected from from a house's plumbing to the sinks.

The two hoses that tap into the water heater is the hot and cold water. The fittings of these hoses are bad and are leaking.

Unfortunately, the other ends of these hoses go up into the RV chassis. I can not see where they tap into the plumbing. I'm truly hoping that I don't have to pull out my residential refrigerator to gain access to the other ends of these hoses.
