Putting in a new Atwood water heater to replace the burned one. I ordered the gas-electric model. I need another lead from the WH up to the switch in the bathroom for the relay for the electric heat element.
How does Airstream run the wires through the wall? do they go through grommets in the ribs or just bare cutouts? Are the wires fastened in the wall?
One thought is, could I use one of the existing wires to pull through 2 new wires in it place? Sounds risky. Can anybody who has had the interior skin off comment on the wiring?
Currently I am thinking of putting a male plug on the electric element and powering it with an extension cord with a breaker and GFI. Do not want the 12 amp load from the WH on the trailer 30 amp circut anyway. I will run a 12 volt
switch for the relay and put the 12 volt
switch in the storage compartment next to the WH and with the cord for it. But it would be nice to have the 12 volt
switch in the bathroom where the single switch is now. Atwood furnished a new double switch panel.
