Don't mean to be picky, but year and make of TT and make and model of water heater. A picture might help...

Have you checked to see where it's leaking from ?you may have to dig into it a little deeper to find the exact location. A friend last year had his water heater leaking and found out the tank had a crack in it where it was originally welded together. The tank was aluminum. Took it in and had it tig welded . Saved quite a bit over a new water heater.

Our water heater leaked when full of hot water out of the T&P valve. Once I put a pressure regulator on the incoming line, it all stopped. Easy fix for this. If your tank is physically leaking, then that is another story.

If it's an Atwood heater, I believe that's where the electric heating element is located. There's a gasket on the element that may not be fully seated or the element itself may have worked loose. You're gonna have to remove the black cover to find out.
