Hooked up the inteli-power and 12v system and everything seems to work, the battery was showing 13.42 volts. This is just a temp hook-up, will be going with battery box that meets RVIA code...........toastie

I original bought a 30 gal fresh water tank and because of room and usage decided to go with this 10 gal tank (ROTONICS WATER TANK) Will also be going with a high volume pressure systems which will give me a total of 11 gals. The tank will be place so that it can be easily removed for winterizing and sanitizing...............toastie

Toastie,
That Rotonics setup looks great! Where did you come up with it? It looks like something that could work in my '55 Safari in the original location under the dinette bench. What are the dimensions? Does the pump come with it? And if you don't mind my asking, how much was it?

Thanks in advance for the answers.

Decided to go with a Suburban SW6DE. This water heater will operate on both gas or electricity and has electronic ignition. Will be modifying the back door and door frame just a little to make it work...........toastie

Had a ruff time with my running lights and turn signal last week and determine that I had a grounding problem. After reading and talking to some friends that own trailer business and a frame that has 3 coats of paint decided decided to go this way. Ran a ground right to tongue, tongue to a grounding bar, bargman cable ground to grounding bar, electric brakes and battery to grounding bar, complete design control. Everything is working perfect..........toastie

Good call. If I were planning on redoing my 12V electrical, I'd run everything to a separate grounding bus bar as well.

Toastie, sorry to dilute your thread with my personal question, but where did you buy your marinco power inlet? I seem to recall you got a very good price on it. Would you mind letting me in on the source?
