Leaky Water Heater
Posted By Good Sam On July 10, 2012 @ 11:05 am In Tech Tips | 1 Comment
I have a 1991 Class C motorhome with a gas/electric water heater. Last fall, I winterized all the piping but forgot to take the plug out of the Atwood water heater. The worst-case scenario happened.
On our first trip out, it started to leak profusely. I bypassed it for the rest of the journey. Now what? Do I assume the tank is cracked and buy a new unit? How difficult are they to remove from the RV? I would like to attempt to replace it myself.

Assuming the leak is from inside and not the plumbing, yes, you need a new unit. Difficulty depends on how the coach is built around it.
