Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.

S​orry for the delay in someone getting to your question! I had to go out on a Service Call and just got back online again. It does sound like something may have frozen and broken. Any evidence of that inside the motorhome? And is the water heater mounted above or below the floorline in this? If below and it got very cold inside one of the bays where this is accessed from it may have broken a line or fitting. Some careful examination would be needed to find out. You might have to run the water once you can see that area to ascertain where exactly the leak is coming from. Once you do I can give you some repair tips on how to correct that. All follow ups are included in our one time fee. No time limit.

Heater is above floor. Turned water back on it quit. All systems were good.sinks worked/ good hot water/ commode worked Turned water off and it started leaking again. Went to fresh water tank in compartment next to it turned drain valve on it for a while and it quit after about 5gallons drain out. Sure confusing. Any suggestion.
