|Re: 1985 Nuwa Hitchhiker Fufth Wheel Water Tank Replacement by BUBBA THE BUS TECH|
|There is a sticker on the water heater just inside the water heater door with the make and model #.
A few things to think about.
1st You will hate an RV tankless water heater. They do not provide hot water at the flow rate you are used to. Go turn your hot shower faucet to full hot, no cold mixed in, now turn it down halfway toward off. This how much water will actually come out hot enough to shower in. I strongly recomend a custom installed home system instead, they work ok and provide real useable flow rates.
2nd This system will need a special kit if you live in an area that gets cold enough to freeze plumbing. Otherwise you get to buy a new water heater after it freexes solid.
To order the correct tankless RV system and installation parts: Measure the water heater door on the outside to get the opening size the water heater is to mount in. Now go to your prefered RV parts supplier and tell him the opening size and the full time use. He will be able to set you up.
As to a profesional instal, this 2 to 5 hours of custom work depending on your RV. Expect to pay good money for good work.
Finally it is a complicated device with fans and flow switches and lions and tigers oh my. It will break down and it is not an easy thing to repair when it does.
Every one our shop has done has disapointed the customer in some way and, knock on wood, not once a install or technition error. No comebacks is rare thing in the RV service business.
