Water in bottom of hwh

Good morning. We are out for another weekend trip and things are going well. Beautiful weather in Gettysburg. I have noticed some water collecting in the bottom of the HWH on the outside. Could be coming out of the relief valve. Have not noticed this before, but wonder if others have experienced this? The HWH is working great. I only use it gas mode. Thanks all.....

Mine does the same thing occassionally. So far I cannot pinpoint what is causing it because it happens very sporadically, and it happens when firing and when idle. It is certainly coming from the relief valve. If it gets worse I may have it looked at, but now it doesn't cause any problems.

Relief valves are very easy to replace and fairly inexpensive. If you change it and you should be good to go for a long time. Once they start dripping I have never seen one just stop leaking. Some will say it is normal for it to drip a little but I don't like it and would change the valve. I seem to recall the last one I bought was less than 15 bucks. Good lock out there.

Oh and wouldn't it be a CWH or just a WH? lol

Thanks. I will monitor it through out the rest of the weekend and see what happens. I haven't seen anymore since cleaning it out this morning. If it continues, I will take it to the dealer since it is still under warranty. Appreciate the help.

Any chance your anode rod needs to be tightened? That's where I'd start.

It's the relief valve. I switched over to AC power and went to check the unit and there it was dripping away. I turned everything off and flushed the relief valve hoping to clear any junk that might be in there. Think I will replace it anyway. Just makes me little ticked off that its a new camper and the relief valve less after three months. So goes being an RV owner... more fun. Later,
