Leaking antifreeze Hurricane Heater 2003 CC Lexa

Have been noticing what appears to be yellow antifreeze like fluid collecting on the ground directly under my hurricane heater for the past few months. I know itís dripping off the exhaust elbow coming out of the bottom of the Hurricane heater, so I believe there must be a compromise of sorts within the heater body. I attempted to tighten the antifreeze clamps on both hoses going into and out of the top of the heater but still leaking. I will be removing the Hurricane heater today to investigate. Thoughts? Leaking water jacket maybe? Anyone ever deal with this?

Thanks

I've dealt with this. You could have a leaking water jacket/tank (it's made of copper and brass) and in that case you could try to have the crack(s) brazed. ITR told me such leaking will, unfortunately, usually reappear. However, if you remove the access cover you'll find several internal hoses routing the antifreeze through the unit and those could be leaking or have clamps that could be loose or compromised. On mine, some of them are hard to get to, as the clamps were installed facing the rear of the unit.
