It is possible that the hot water hose couplings for the heater are liking and that is why the muffler is rotting. other probable causes:

a) squirting water on back water seal

b) washing the engine while hot

c) driving right after washing engine The problem is water related (to my narrow knowlodge) or if you live near the sea, could be salt related. Remember; heat accelerates corrotion.
