Reputable repair shop in Moab Utah?

I recently noticed water dripping on the ground under what I believe to be the Espar diesel heater. Thankfully no water whatsoever inside the van in the cabinet that houses the heater nor the cabinet that houses the fresh water tank. Perhaps a loosened connection in the plumbing somewhere?

I will be in Moab, UT in a few weeks and wonder if folks have any recs for a place that could get the van up and take a look.

I live in Bend, OR and not sure that anyone is here that can, but if so, please enlighten me!

2017 SMB 4x4, Low roof, 144

Thanks in advance

If the water is dripping below or near the heater exhaust, then it is likely condensation from running the heater. This is normal for these heaters.

Thanks for your reply. It really is a constant drip that is continuous and not under or near the exhaust, but I guess that is something to consider.

Verifying this is an Espar Hydronic hot water heater? You've verified it's water (put your hand under the drip, smell it, examine the color, etc.)? Is the appliance interior or exterior?
