Hot water tank

A friend of mine just bought a 2012 cc 36 ckts. This weekend was his 1 st trip with it. After being hooked up for about 2 hrs I noticed water dripping from where the hot water tank is located. We turned the supply line off to the tank and it stopped. More than likely tank leaking. Is there anything else I should check. Turned water back on started dripping again. How difficult is it to change tank. It's a 12 gallon suburban.

Normal weeping from overflow valve. Ignore it.

Thanks for the reply. This is more than just a little drip. It's just guessing about a gallon every 2hours.

There's a handle on the overflow valve. Lift it briefly to blow out any debris.

Water leaking from the pressure relief valve is "not normal"

It's not leaking from relief valve. It's coming from front of tank. Behind the panel on side of camper. When looking at back of tank, you can see water seeping from under tank. Checked all fittings and none are leaking.

I have a 2013/14 32RCTS. Last summer the hot water check valve on the rear of the heater cracked. It was plastic. With some assistance from my camping neighbors we managed to pull the heater and replace with a brass check valve. Purchased an extra just for good measure. Can you see the cold water in/hot water out fittings on the back of the heater?

Since it's a used Cedar Creek it may not have been winterized right. I would not think the hot water tank would leak this soon, it's only four years old
