Will a 10-gallon water heater typically retro-fit if you have a 6-gallon water heater, or is the 10-gallon substantially bigger?

The 10 gallon is about 40% larger. When I custom ordered my Gulfstream park trailer, they were unable to install a 10 gallon one because another option that was more important to me required they move the water heater to a smaller compartment.

If the water heater is in a spot with extra room or that can be "harvested," a size upgrade might be possible.

Also, I can run my hot water heater on gas and electric simultaneously for quicker recovery and what at least feels like hotter water. I only have to do this when we are doing showers back-to-back-to-back.

If you are getting hot water everywhere else but not in the shower then the problem is in the shower valve.

If you are getting no hot water anywhere but your hot water heater is igniting then check your winterization bypass valve and that the outside shower is turned off from the valve and not just the shower head. If this doesn't help then there is a chance that the atomatic backflow valves connected to the water heater are stuck.

If the water heater is not igniting then verify that it is turned on by the switch that controls gas operation but not the electric element and then start by checking that the fuse link connected to the limit switches has not been blown or that there are any lose connections being careful not to unseat the limit switches behind the patch of insulation. Sometimes wind may cause a back flame which this sacrificial safety device will detect and then blow turning off the gas flow.

Beyond this you would have to start trouble shooting the gas and control system of the water heater and propane supply.

Russ,

Assuming your HW problem is only in the shower, do you have a Moen control as our '05 38R has? If so, here is a link for Moen contact info.

They will send replacement parts at no cost to you. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Frank;

The metal wrapping on my shower hose is coming undone. I need a new shower hose. How can I tell what model Moen I have??? I should have the same as you do.

Tom,

It has been a while since I had the problem. However, I believe in browzing thru the Moen site I found a display of the lavatory fixture I have.

There is nothing in the Winnie "black bag" about plumbing fixtures.

My shower faucet is marked Moen on the center of the hot/cold control knob. The center of the removable shower head is marked Alsons.

http://www.alsons.com

Looks like the shower faucet assembly is Moen but the hand shower is Alsons.

I have the optional Shower package with fold down seat and hand held showerhead. Gee I paid $294 MSRP for that!

I called Alsons and they are sending me a new shower hose.
