Adding insulation to water heater
My gal bought a used motor home. The PO said the hot water tank had a leak. I think the leak was where I could fit my hand in the side of the tank ! Ya think? Anyway I am replacing the tank, not the whole heater. My friend had a spare.
I will have to remove the insulation, and I was wondering ( while I am at it ) has anyone added more insulation to their water heater. They are often under a bed, like this one. In the winter I might not want any insulation , and in the summer, a whole lot. Is this foolish thinking, crazy compulive behavior, ignorant ramblings, overly idiotic frugalness, typical Airstream overkill, conscientious conservitism, or good ole American ingenuity?
P.S. any hints or warnings concerning the tank replacement would be appreciated Dave
