Prepping for a journey. Checking everything out. Hooked up the water (we had a brutal Winter at our place) to check for leaks. I keep a heater in the trailer all winter, so shouldn't have had any problems. Turned on the valve on the hose outside and water was coming into the floor of the trailer as fast as it was coming out of the hose!
What a mess! Cleaned things up and tried again with the little wife outside "Captaining" the valve and me with a flashlight inside the street side rear seat where the water heater is. None of the water lines indicated any leakage, but at the front of the hot water heater, the water was gushing out like crazy. Tried to get the bench seat out, but because of all the electrical stuff hooked up it isn't removable..........at least at my skill level. I'd never get all of that back together! Since the seat won't come out the only way to access where I saw all the water is to remove the entire hot water heater assembly.........................but it's pop-riveted in. The freeze plug isn't the problem. Besides, it's on the outside of the trailer, inside the door. Anyone know how I can get into that compartment without tearing the entire thing out?
