Frank - come on up to our house. I will help you wash and wax if you can assure me the effort will result in rain. LOL

Gordon,
One of these days, I might just take you up on that offer, lol. There are no guarantees on the rain, but I do have a pretty good track record over the last 10 years about at least sprinkling when I wash the RV, sometimes even before I am finished washing it.
Frank

Terry, sorry about the missed calls, cell is marginal at best! Will try tonight again!
Used the stove this morning, and it fired first click! So all of the appliances work as they should! And the WH is so quiet when running on propane, you can't barely hear it! Well better get going, I'm burning daylight! Wait, I'm retired, and on vacation! We are vortexing the warm up with us!

Good Afternoon, Well we are upgrading the hot water heater in the TH, the original is a 6 gal manual start, and the one we are installing is a remote start on propane and also has electric elements, and is a 10 gal. So we had to cut the hole bigger, we are videoing it so when we get it all done we'll let everyone know.

You will definitely like the bigger tank, especially on electric. Saves a lot of hassle refilling the propane if you have an electric source. We found the water temp was more uniform on electric than on gas.

Nice upgrade Terry, if you run out of hot water like I do when Rita takes one of her long showers, I turn the gas and elec on and have hot water in less than 5 min. Yes i have a 10 gal and she still runs me out sometimes.

Gordon, This is the unit that I was going to buy so when I saw it in the latest donor trailer I figured why not? I don't need it in the Tot'r as much as I would need it in the TH. Frank, I'm probley the one that would run it out, I like hot water on my old bones . I have it hooked up to propane and temp hooked up the power (12 volt) it fired right up , and I didn't even burn any hold downs . Now to run all the wires and install the switches for 12V and 110V

Intact hold down straps . . . . bonus. Perhaps you could burn one as a sacrifice!!

Hahahaha! That was pretty funny though, just glad Frank kept his hair! Yes Terry, I tried to call you, but I think I have the wrong #? I sent you a PM.

I think you've just been "burned"
No worries , it's all just part of getting a used rig up to snuff!

That 10 gallon tank looks identical to ours Terry... I think you will like it. It actually makes enough hot water you can take a real shower as long as you have an efficient shower head. Like Frank said, you can run the propane and the electric at the same time... puts a lot of Btu's in the water pretty fast. Ours also has a heat exchanger in it that makes hot water from the engine... not so helpful in a TH I guess...

-cheers

Good Evening, I just couldn't resist the reference to the strap burning . Piker, thanks for the tip, yup it would be a looong hose for the heat exchanger to work . When I built the TH I had figured I would install one of those WH so I put built the opening for the larger size and then sized it down to the one I had so to install this one was easy, just cut down to the next support and slide the heater in.
