I did it the easy way....I called Andy at Inland. It fit perfectly...but the price was up there. Good news was....Andy is always at the other end of the phone.

I also got a new thermostat for the oven from Singletons RV salvage in Rochester WA. I know for a fact that they have one left unless they sold it in the last month. It is a used part but it works well.

I like the larger tank, where did you get it?

Thread is over five years old. I used the standard tank.

5 years old, but still a relevant topic! You can use a standard tank but it is expensive, and will crack again someday because it is fiberglass, not polyethylene. Vintage Trailer Supply now carries the perfect tank. I helped develop it and was the first to use it in my 65 Caravel. It is an 11 gallon polyethylene tank that fits the old location and will stick out a little further in the closet - no big deal for the extra capacity. Here is the link... Corner Tank
