Water Heater Tank Water Leaking

2014 bounder 35K

welp, walked out the front door this afternoon to a flood of water flowing by the water tank. opened the water heater door and inside is dry, looked under the bounder where the water heater is located and the tank that is adjacent was leaking from the bottom.

No visible holes or crack, looks to be coming from where a flat panel screwed in is located. Called fleetwood tech support and I could have just as well asked my dogs the question with the amount of help I got from him.

So I'm thinking of see'ing if I can unscrew the flat panel from the bottom of that tank and maybe, hopefully there is just a easy fix? pvc crack? or something that is unrelated to the tank.


thanks for all the great advice I always get from the forum.

An obvious place to start, is under the coach near the water puddle with flashlight. Could be the other 3 tanks, black, gray, fresh, hose connections, fittings, etc.

I hope you post us what you find. Good Luck John

Leaking water heater

sorry for delay, was unable to login here. the problem is resolved and here it is: 2014 bounder 35K, looking underneath the bounder where the water heater is, there is a panel. Using a Philips screw driver, remove the single screw.
The panel opens outwards and there is a 1/2" x 1x2" 20"l water hose which takes the water from the either the city water coming in the bounder and into the water heater or from the water heater into the bounder faucets. It was connected to the red line so while I was out getting the hose to replace the broken one, I turned off the hot water line and at least I had the cold water running.

It was a regular flexi mesh type hose, and I used a stronger metal type hose to fix the problem. turned the hot water back on and yes!! no leaks.
