noralee is an unknown quantity at this point
I remembered something today and feeling pretty foolish. The drain from the water heater has been dripping. And I haven't even connected it because the main exterior water spot is closer to the inlet valve. The dripping could certainly be the main cause of a lot of this moisture. I do also think the valve is contributing, and I'm replacing it too. But I've also ordered a new plug for the heater and will wait to reinstall it until I get the new plug.

I discovered today that the exterior drip had noticeably begun to dry, now 2 days later, and made the connection to the plug drip. The drip could be caused by the buildup of material in the tank too so that's also been solved. Fixing plug along with replacing the valve and correcting the plumbing/regulator should solve this issue I think. Some good news yay.

I have also realized today I do not have the exterior corner brackets. Does anyone have any extras for Atwood before I buy new?

I do not have any used ones, but found the part number of the new ones.

Atwood 91928 Set of 4 corner brackets

https://www.amazon.com/Atwood-Mobile.../dp/B00N5052FA

Even cheaper.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Atwood-9192...-/222293183566

Odd the same place is selling with 2 very different prices. I have bought from them before and had positive experiences. The free shipping is most likely US mail so it may take a 2 to 5 days to get to you.

Hope this helps

John

I can't tell for sure in the pics here. Do you caulk around the heater after butyl tape or is tape enough?

I myself, do caulk around the heater flange with either Dicor non leveling caulk or RV Proflex by Geocel after the butyl install. This adds a second layer of protection and it stops the dirt from sticking so badly to the exposed butyl gap. Just do not over do it on the caulk or the door will not close right. And you may have to wait for the caulk to cure up some if the door hits the caulk bead. You do not need a lot of caulk, just enough to cover the exposed butyl.

That said, the butyl will hold just fine creating a positive seal. You can add the caulk when you get the tube. You just might have to clean the butyl edge as dirt may have built up by the time you get back to it.

Hope this helps

John
