Thanks Biscuit and Mevman, good info. I will likely install the new unit as is im order to be back in the hot water business soonest. I have family visiting and using the RV as guest quarters.

But I plan to keep the EXT unit and see if I canít repair it. If I miss the mixing valve I can re-install the EXT.

Thanks again

Hal

Hal,
As mentioned and maybe simpler to install with existing hoses is to convert your new unit to the EXT type by adding the existing mixing valve and changing out the thermostat from you existing unit to the new one, otherwise you have a cold water mixing hose with no place to go.

Good luck in any case.

That cold water mixing hose ....install a shutoff and 'T' it into the Hot outlet line...now you have a Bypass

Thanks fellas,

I like the idea of two bypass valves! Combat redundancy. Two is one. One is none!
