Leaking Hot Water Tank

Brand new 2018 Springdale with Surburban Hot Water tank and i went through everything last night making sure we were a go for next weekend camping and my wife noticed the tank leaking water from inside all over my floor..I narrowed it down that it was actually leaking from access of outside the rv..what a real crappy job of having a seam at the bottom of these things and also a crappy seal job from keystone..i taped the anode rod and this thing looks like it is leaking from the silver circle behind the anode rode with the 6 or 7 dots around it..then it leaked into the seam causing it to finally make the way out onto my floor in the camper..Anyone know how I can fix this issue

Take it back to the dealership and let them fix it. You'll probably need to pull the water heater if the leak is coming from the anode fitting on the tank. If you "mess with it" and they (the dealer or Keystone) determine that your actions caused/created a bigger problem, they may deny a warranty repair. Water heaters run around $500 plus installation. That's an expensive "lesson" in voiding warranty repairs.

If you do decide to repair it yourself, you'll probably need a new tank if the leak is in the welded union where the anode rod is installed.

I'd first wonder why the dealership didn't find that kind of problem during their PDI ?????
