I have a electric mobile home water heater that is leaking at fitting where the hot water connects?

I have a electric mobile home water heater that is leaking at fitting where the hot water connects. The connection is on the side 2 inches from the top. The connection is plastic a friend told me to put some plumber putty around the connection.

I was reading on the container of the plumbers putty and it stated not to use on plastic.

I have seen the spray foam but did not know if I could use this because of the hot water temp being 120 degrees.

Any Ideals the water heater is only a year old and I hate to replace it. The water heater was not purchaced by me so I doubt warrenty would be good.

You do not need a replacement.
The line is made of PVC.
This is not a difficult task to replace the fitting.

You will need to cut off the water supply, and you may have to drain the tank if the damage is at the tank connection. Cut off the heater.
Draining is done with a hose attached to the drain fawcett.
Buy some PVC, the same size. You may also have to use the same gauge to fit the valve. These are labled by number. If you can’t see a number on the old, you may have to carry a piece with you to buy the correct one.

You then need a “Cleaner”, “Adhesive”, and a saw or tool for cutting the correct length.
You can get all the directions from a plumbing supply.

Patching may get you a flood some night. I wouldn’t.
