Richmond 40 gal water heater from 2003 gurgles loudly when refilling, is that normal

I'm not sure what you mean by "gurgles when refilling." If you mean that it is making noise when heating the water, that is usually a sign that sediment has built up in the bottom of the tank. This results in the surface of the tank bottom to overheat and the sound you hear is the water flashing to steam. This usually results in tank failure as the glass lining will crack an the tank will rust out. If it's not too late you could drain and flush the tank to try to remove the sediment but if has hardened to a solid mass it won't come out.

Brand new Atwood 6 gal hot water heater, stainless, has leaked at one corner since I installed about one + yrs. ago. Can it be fixed without removal?

If you can find yourself a GOOD welder in your area that has a tig welder, or a mig welder with stainless steel wire option all you would have to do is empty the tank of water. Or better yet, if possible take it out and return it, if it's really only a year old these things should be under warranty still.

I own a 31' trailer which has an ATWOOD G6A-8E RV Water Heater, 6 Gal electronic ignition, 2 yrs ago the pressure relief valve would open up and empty the hot water tank completely, it did this several...

Most electronic ignition models only show the red light if there is a problem, (did not ignite) for one reason or another. To start with, make sure your propane is on, and you have a good flame at stove top burner, just to be sure the water heater is getting propane, and all air is bled from the line, which may cause water heater to go into check. (red light) If it does, shut switch off, and retry. Let me know what happens. As far as pressure relief opening and emptying the water heater, and your sure it's not a faulty pressure relief valve, then there's 2 things to start with checking. 1st, does the water seem extremely hot, thus a possible faulty thermostat &/or ECO . Secondly, if the incoming water pressure is too high, that will also cause it to leak bad. Try installing a pressure regulator (usually 40 psi.) at your hose connection. Let me know what you find.
