coolant leak heater

I started losing several ounces of coolant in reservoir. I was very relieved it turned out not to be as not the engine when I saw coolant pooling below the Atwood heater, but now I think I have to remove the heater to find the leak.

There is no sign of a leak at any of the hose connections I can see at the front but it is so crowded with hoses it is difficult to see anything. The coolant only appears when the engine is running. It is mostly from the right side as you face the heater but there are older signs of pinkish stain coming out from under the heater toward the center and left as well.

Does anyone have any advice about getting at the leak? Are there secrets to removing the heater from the very tight space?
