Water tank leak

New owner of a 35SS cruiser and first outing after filling water tank, have a dripping leak at the valve. It is not the valve itself, is above it. Has anyone had the coroplast down and can tell me if the hose that has the drain has a crimp fitting at the top? The tank only leaked until it was at 1/3 level then stopped. Thinking maybe a leak at the upper connection is the cause. Thanks for any help offered.

I have a 2017 Sunset Trail that has had two leaks. First leak was from the tank. The factory had put a screw into the tank. Dripped from the underbelly until about 2/3's full.

Second leak was a hose connection into the tank.

If you’re talking about some leakage at the pressure relief valve, that’s normal. The temps of these water heaters are high enough that the tank will bleed off a little water until the pressure is reduced. My source for this is Trailer Life magazine and the Suburban Water Heater manual.

Fresh water tank, NOT the water heater...

Have not taken the coroplast down yet to search for source of leak, will post when I find it. Was hoping for some info on how it is connected to the tank.

Mine has a nipple/elbow (which screws into the tank) on the openings. Then it's usually a good old hose clamp holding the hose onto it.

Well I got time to look at mine and it has pex pipe onto a 90 elbow, and it’s the bung in the tank that’s leaking. I assume these are glued or plastic welded in place, so maybe some good old silicone around it will cure the leak. Does anyone have a better idea for sealing it up? Thanks
