Water heater access

I have a 2006 Adventurer.
I need to acess the back of the water heater.
There does not appear to be an access panel on the back or bottom of the steel box holding the tank.
How do go about pulling the tank?

This might to help.

Looks like you have no adjacent compartment? Removal may be the only way to get at it.

Looking at the picture that Tim provided the Adventure looks like my 2008 Voyage. With the slide out see if there is a removable panel facing forward where your water heater is located. You will have to get under the slide to remove the panel if it is there. Kinda bet it's there. Let us know what you find.

Found it

Thank Topsail,
The water heater access panel is on the front side of the panel.

Frayfl, I have a 06 Adventurer. There is a oval cut on the back of the water heater box with a plastic insert in it. The oval is about 6” to 8” long and 4” to 5” wide. Not much room but enough to disconnect the water connections.

Water heater access

I had the same rig, the access cover is on the side of the water heater facing the front of your MH. the front slide needs to be fully extended and you have to crawl under the rig to access it. The entire cover comes off exposing the heater. To replace the electric Element you also need to remove all of the screws on the front of the water heater so it can slide forward. Yes, you will need to disconnect the water lines and gas line when doing this. Because it is such a job is why CW and repair shops quoted be $1200-1600 to replace the element.
