X17Z Water Heater Leaking

Late getting the camper out this year but I was flushing out all of the antifreeze and as I'm doing this, I hear a hissing sound, but can't find the source. I notice water leaking out the front exterior around the diamondplate on the front at the very bottom. Long story short, I pulled the seat and the wood trim in front of the front bunk to get a better look at the water heater and water is leaking from under there somewhere. All the lines are dry, so it seems the tank itself is leaking? Not too familiar with these, but I can't see any water lines running under the unit. Looks like I'll need a new water heater, or is there something I'm missing? Once I shut the valves off supplying the heater water, it flowed (cold only) just fine with no issues anywhere else.

Did you have it winterized? It sounds to me like it may have froze and split the tank?

I'm guessing I didn't winterize it properly lol. I figured it was the tank that split, just making sure I wasn't missing something though. I figured it was winterized properly when pink was flowing from everywhere and every line I could see had pink in it, but guess not. Live and learn.
