Recently bought a 1974 Vindale mobile home. Water heater needs to be replaced. Not sure of its location.

I am no expert on this, but if there is not an water heater door on the outside then the water heater is probably located behind the end wall of a clothes closet. That is the location of mine. Clear out the clothes, and remove the wall. When I did this I saw that the floor of the water heater was rotted out and the water heater was leaning against the wall. I remove the water heater and tore out the rotted floor and rebuilt the floor. I then installed a new door from the bedroom to have access to the water heater. Hopes this helps.
