Outside. .. But in the compartment. .. I'm thinking an overflow or vent is blocked or broken. .. I've got a couple warranty things I need done.

Two things to look at, anode rod loose or no putty/tape on the threads.
Pressure relief valve bad.

This is the problem with jumping on a thread belonging to someone else.
Posts (and help) get confused.

Have you checked your isolation valves behind the water heater?

The anti back flow valve for the black tank is leaking. It is probably cracked. I had the same problem with mine. My valve was behind the pantry, and water would leak from under the frig. Follow the line around the compartment where it is coming from, I can't think they would put the valve in a inaccessible spot. Maybe call Forest River for its location. Did your unit spend the winter before you bought it ?

try putting a sack of ice down your toilet it helps keep everything clean and the seniors while your driving.
