Coleman, regular height. Cost was $650 each plus install. Also I like that they are more powerful for this TEXAS heat!

Picked up my ride today with her new a/c's installed! As I was driving down the road with the rear a/c running and I could feel a cool breeze on the back if my neck while in the drivers seat. Click image for larger version

Hmmmmm would seem to be so much easier with everything out of the way..... Might have to add that to the list as I want to get rid of the aux eng heat in our current set up

As far as I'm concerned getting rid of the aux eng heat is a good idea. I spilled a little anti-freeze from the 310 aux heater when I was disconnecting the hoses and it smelled for quite sometime due to having soaked into the carpet. Not a pleasant odor

Sorry for the delay I've been out of touch wandering around Alaska. The install is really simple, disconnect propane and water, remove about a dozen screws and pull out the old unit. Bend the flanges on the new water heater, apply butyl tape, push in hole, screw into place, reconnect propane and water. All the mounting holes and connections are the same as the original water heater. The only inside work is the water. My new unit has AC heating also so I had to run wiring for that but the basic install of the heater is very simple.

Thanks! I am disconnecting the aux heat from the engine as I type. Don't want the leaks issue to always be in the back of my mind.

New bell cranks, steering arm and shocks. New steering stabilizer should arrive at Napa this morning. Hoping this really tightens up the steering!

I installed shut off valves in mine to eliminate the auxiliary heater and water heater in the heater hose lines when not needed. I can turn back on if needed. This will eliminate having to deal with burst heater hose lines.
