RV Water Heater Replacement


There was a thin, but long crack along our hot water heater in the RV.  After researching whether it could be welded, we found that there is a porcelain lining also cracked and could leach particles into the water.  So new water heater it was!




The base underneath it was old and warped, so Casey copied it and built a fresh new one.




Some simple wiring, and it was ready to go!



We found ours by searching Google by the product number.  The prices varied widely and it turns out we spent 1/2 of what our local camping supplier charged.  And as a bonus it showed up in two days and shipping only cost us $10.  I'd recommend the place we bought it from highly.

  1. My husband and I had the very same problem with our RV last year! We were not as good as you and hired someone to fix it, which cost a fortune! You seem to have done a brilliant job, will definitely next time be looking to do it ourselves if we can! Thank you for sharing this.

  3. My parents have been visited by a sales company who made initial contact through a phone call during the day. Next a visit and pressure to sign up for a Little Magic Box hot water system. Basically a new boiler and box with a panel outside which will make their hot water – and cost the same as a new car!!I have called and cancelled any orders – at which they tried to offer me a further discount!! This is just high pressure sales at its worst.
