Water out the rear of h2o heater

Went to de-winterize the 2013 crusader today like I've done since 2013 and "suprise " water comes running out one of the hoses in the rear of water heater. Have 3 fans drying the floor. Almost dry. But looks like it's off to the rv repairman. Luckily for me he is a good friend and won't screw me around. Not what I was hoping for. Looks like one of the white tubes is broke. Worst design I've ever seen behind the water heater.

You may want to ensure that what ever caused the hose to split did not damage your water heater.

True, that's why it's going in. I can't get up in behind to see what's going on, plus my rv guy will fix what needs fixing. Frustrating since I had antifreeze running through entire system .

Did you open the bypass valve when you winterized??

I think so, pink went through everything. Did it the same way for the last 3 years.
