Water leaking from hot water tank

First time de-winterizing and water is coming out of the electrical connection on the front of the water tank. The camper is a 2014 prime time tracer. I bypassed the water tank for the weekend so we have water. I know I had pink fluid coming out of the hot water spickets in the fall. What should I do in the morning or is my hot water tank shot.

Can you post a picture of where the water is coming from?

Ditto.

If you have the Suburban water heater, is it coming out around the anode rod? This is what you removed to drain the water heater when it was winterized. Are you sure it is tight and did you use teflon tape to help seal the threads when replacing it?

It may just be something simple as the anode rod not being tight or needs teflon tape. If someone else did the winterizing, they removed the anode rod to drain the tank (as that's what you remove to drain), and may have just lightly screwed it back in, which many people do to keep bugs and dirt out during the winter storage.
