Drip pan for under water heater?

Has anyone done this? Well, ya know me, always tinkering Since I have Sunny tore apart to replace the burnt out electric element in the heater, I am trying to figure out a way to put a drip pan under the heater. I will keep you posted on this progress, as I have a couple ideas. And since the sofa is also removed, I'll be raising it about 2 inches when I put it back, and I am working on a new attachment method in place of those "BACK" screws .

OOPS, gotta go drive the bus, got kids waiting to go to school,

Later,
Kitty

The drip pan, no I have not done that. but can think of a few ways on how. Get a Sterilite plastic tub, cut the side walls down to needed size and slide under.

Now the question: What are you thinking the problem is? I have not seen any sweat from the unit and a leaking fitting cana happen bout anywhere in the camper, so we have to stay on top of them.

BUT I'm always open to doing preventive things before issues comes up. So what's your thoughts?

Drip pan..

When we replaced the water heater in one of our old Sunnies, we put a "boot tray" under it for those little emergencies..you know, the black plastic kind that you set inside your front door at home to hold the winter boots..

Well, I got back to my project tonight. I cut down a Sterlite plastic storage tote. I had to use a wood burning tool to do the cutting as I was afraid of cutting off a finger or slashing a wrist "IF" I used a utility knife. That would have stopped my progress, so I went the safe route. I am doing this as a precaution in case the tank would spring a leak and also due to the amount of water that is still in the tank once drained and you need to remove the heating element, it will now be able to drain outside INSTEAD of on the floor and towels.

Hopefully here are some pics:

I also got the new heating element installed after I had the drip pan in place, so I know that clears the pan for replacement.
