I have a 1996 Nomad, I don't imagine that probably matters but I'll throw it out there. I have a leaking SW6-DE water heater. The water that leaks out is cold so it must be coming from a hose that leads to the tank or from a fitting that attaches the hose to the tank. It is a prettygood leak. It is somewhere between a stream of water and rapid drips. Some of the drips look like they are about 1/2 to 1 inch long. I have city water so it doesn't drain my fresh water tank but this is going to cause wood rot and other problems I would think. I don't want to tear into this thing until I know what to do to fix a leak in the hose or at the fitting that attaches the hose. I have to be extremely cautious because my mechanical skills are sorely lacking and I could easily botch this job unless I am prepared. Is there a tape or sealant I should have on hand when I open it up so I can fix it right then. I am pretty sure this is coming from where the hose and the tank attach. If I am correct, what should I be ready with. Will JB Weld work? What is the moron proof fix? I have looked all over to find a YouTube (or any other) video on replacing a SW6-DE but cannot find one that shows what it looks like when it is out. I found some on maintenance and repairing an anode but I need to be behind that. I need to be where the hose attaches (that is assuming that a cold water link is coming before it gets into the tank and heated). Anyone know where I can find a complete replacement video on the SW6-DE or on any other tank that looks the same? I did find a manual from Suburban on my water heater but it was about trouble shooting and other specs, it didn't cover replacement. How would you recommend I proceed and what repair materials should I have. Thank you for taking time to consider my problem. Mark First update: I found this video for a SW10-DE. It looks identical or nearly identical to mine. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6LQ1coUNkU I would still love to hear any tips you have on doing it or on the easiest materials/methods of repair. Second update: I can see the water dripping out of the water line that is at the bottom of the tank. It looks rusty. What do I do about it? I'll come back and edit again by adding a picture. There is no need for a picture: There is water spraying out of the tank itself, not just the pipe. Can I buy a bottle for it or do I need to get a complete water heater unit. Unless there is a way to repair the tank. (this water is under pressure, it was spraying).
