Water leaking from area at hot water heater

Coachmen Leprechaun 260ds....water seeping under baseboard by water lines connecting to hot water heater. Does not always happen. Wondering if it could be condensation? They are in such a tight space, we cannot check them.

Not condensate. look for a leak. Might be pressure relief valve. had to replace mine this year. It is supposed to leak outside but may be running back in.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

You need to get it checked- either by you and becoming a contortionist or hiring a mobile RV tech.

If water is coming under the baseboard, itís more than condensation.

In my case, the one way check valve at the inlet of the water heat had magically cracked and was dripping. The moment I put a wrench on it, it broke in 1/2. I spent more time trying to get the left over piece out than anything else.

But, water is bad. Get it looked at.
