new vs old water heater
As I understand it, the new units are not alumimum, tankwise, and that doesn't bode well for long life.
With regard to the tank, it seems I was mistaken and there is no inside "coil , just high and low pipe for hot out and cold in, so my issue must have been a small camper pipe system leak, or leaking relief valve.
So, no tank new needed.....
My plan, while apart , is to incorporate a welded on bung for a 115 V AC electric element and mount adjustable control "switch" as used on commercial electric hot water heaters, with a lighted on -off switch some where convenient to the bathroom of galley area.
I do wish I could retrofit this Bowen G6A2 unit with a auto ignition gas vlave, but haven't found one yet.....
Know of any available?
Thanks for your thoughts..
