I'm not sure I completely get how the water is leaking in. What you see on the outside of the water heater is normally a pan fitting around it that lips over the cut-out and fastens to the TT with screws. Between that lip and the TT skin is a layer of caulking tape that rarely causes a problem.

I can't quite imagine any water that is released outside getting back in. How old is the heater? and is it an Atwood (above) or Suburban?

It is leaking from when he drained his heater into his storage bin below.....through the door.

oh yeah, I see that now. Man I spent 10 minutes figuring out how to pull that pic from the pdf brochure. Why in heck would anybody install a storage compartment under a water heater?

thank you for taking the time to download the water heater pic. I purchased some of the tape that RetiredArmyCWO suggested, and I will work on it this this weekend. hopefully this will stop the leak under the storage compartment. Tell me about it, maybe the builder had some drinks prior to designing the camper.
