65' Bowen leaking

My Caravel was all water tight. Then I fired up the water heater and she sprung a leak. There is water at the top of the aluminum encloser at the very back (curbside from interior.) Lines to and from appear to be dry and everything was dry until I fired her up. Any ideas on what I should do next? It is a shame, cause she fired up so beautifully!

Replace it.

I replaced our Bowen last year. I installed an Atwood gas/electric. Just love it. The electric is used when we have hookups and works fantastic. The recovery (6 gal.) with gas or electric is very fast.
