Has anyone every removed a hotwater heater before? Curious as to how difficult it is. I have an '06 Fleetwood Discovery.
Also wondering if a local plumber could do the repair if I just order the new mixing valve.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
mike i have a 2005 fleet wood probably same as yours,
to remove no big deal
first on the outside remove mounting screws
than turn off your propane to the whole unit at the switch by the refill
than disconnect your propane line to heater
than go inside and pull out your drawers by closet and you will see the hot and cold water lines,you can disconnect these by hand
turn water pump off before disconnect,
than drain your tank from outside
pull your tank out from the outside
the electrical hook up will only allow you tp pull it outbefore so far,but enough excess to anything.
before you do this,explain to me what you are trying to do .
what do you mean by mixing valve?
the valve at your
is a bypass valve used only to winterize
anyways good luck
