Water Heater SW6DE - frame/access door

I have the suburban SW6DE - I switch on the propane for 10 minutes to heat - then shut off before fully heated so that the drip from the pressure valve doesn't go between the water heater frame and the housing to the wood/steel frame of the RV. What sealant do I put at the bottom between the frame and the water heater housing to keep the weep from going to the frame?

Any good silicone sealant will work, But you need to change your relief valve (aka T & P) it should not weep at all.

Gassman is correct the prv shouldn't leak at all.
It eithrr has debris in the valve causing it to leak or its defective.
