Water leak 27.5 Eagle HT

Just in case anyone else finds water laying in the area below the kitchen sink, you might want to look at the back of the water heater.

On the second day of our trip north we found water under the sink area. Naturally thought it must be the drain pipe or seal around the sink. But quickly found out that was not the case. I then took off the wood cover to the heater and found water along the base of the wall seperating the sink and water heater. While I was searching a stream of water came down from the level above but I didn't know what exactly was there. So I took off the tall panel under the sink area, and now could see the back of the water heater. Voila, I saw where the water was coming from. It was a loose fresh water connection to the heater. I double checked all of the connections and tightened the loose water connection and no more leaks.

This I'm hoping was where the water came from in the storage compartment that I noticed a couple of days ago. But not sure if it came from rain outside so I have to wait and see after the next rain storm, tomorrow.

At least I was able to take care of one problem, on to the next?

I don't know if this helps but I will try to post a pic but they always come out upside down or sideways no matter what I do.

Anyway the panel that is below the sink on the 27.5 has one wood strip at the bottom attached to the floor by 2 wood screws. The panel itself is attached by staples and can be pride off by a screw driver. Reattaching is simple by a couple of short wood screws. Take the panel and the strip of wood out and you should see the back side of the water heater. If it is leaking there you will see it immediately.

The first picture shows the water on the floor that is below the water heater and the partition wall that seperates the under sink area, at least on the 27.5 anyway.

Of course now the pictures don't show up. God I wish I could figure out what I am doing wrong.

My stuff is in different locations on my 26.5 BHS, but after reading this, I'll spend a little time next outing opening panels and checking these connections.

Have you tightened the connections to the kitchen faucet yet? Common problem. Might also need to change the washers in those fittings as some of them are bad as well.

When looking for a leak I will lay paper towels or tissue paper along floor area where the leak is suspect. It will 'pucker' when it gets wet.
