Leak in hot water tank

We have a 2005 Jayflight. We went to fill the hot water tank last weekend and it leaked out into the cabinet underneath the sink. We did drain it over the winter so we don't think it could have cracked. Is there somewhere else it may be leaking from? 2nd part to this question, if need be, how do we take this tank out?

Thanks for your help

Jack and Dawn

Mine cracked and leaked along the weld seam, pulled it out and welded it up, been fine ever since.

Your gonna have to do some digging around, could be the fittings on the tank as well.
There's a method to the madness, disturb the method and the madness begins.

Did you check to see if it was the pressure relief valve that was leaking?
