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 ?????
