Previously I was whining about a water leak in my Sunny. I did get everything dried out, but could not find the leak. I enlisted the help of my lovely wife and naturally she found it right away. In the back, under the bed, the water heater.
The project, repair of replace the unit. Could not find one to buy other than a unit in California for over a Thousand Dollars. Not happening. Did find a great source for parts. PDX RV LLC (pdxrvwholesale.com)
They had everything but a tank. After many reassurances I was told that Amazon had the very thing. Nope, they did not. My unit is combo gas and electric so I had to return the Amazon gem.
Next step was to try welding it. We have a great welder we do lots of business with, so I took him the tank. He knew immediately what it was as he usually gets 5 or 6 of them every spring. That was nice to know that I was not the only fool in the RV world.
He rarely sees them in the fall. He did a great job, very affordable and fairly quick.
Got busy on the bench and rebuilt the water heater, and it works great. Learned much, especially to make sure I really drain the water system properly. Remove that darn nylon plug out of the unit!!
