I'm a new member trying to learn to navigate this forum for advice. I think I posted this in the wrong place initially, so here it is again!
We have a 1972 Sovereign
with original equipment that came to us along with the cottage we bought in 2001. It's located on the coast of Maine and hasn't moved in 25 years (located on a point of land surrounded by water). We use it in the summer for guests, and due to its age and lack of TLC over the years it needs some attention. We can do some very basic repairs ourselves, but definitely not plumbing and electrical. Hot water heater needs to be replaced asap. Our plumber suggested a standard 20 gallon hot water heater. Would prefer to switch to electric to avoid past problems/expense dealing with gas leaks (cold Maine winters take their toll on this lovely old airstream). Don't need much hot water, just for dishes and shower once in a while. Am wondering if there's an electric unit small enough to put in one of the closets?
- Other issues: door lock works (replaced tumbler last year) but now latch won't move. Can open door from inside, but not from outside.
- Bottom of exterior rear compartment containing electrical cord, hoses, etc has collapsed, exposing insulation. Can still open and close compartment but need to shore up bottom somehow
Would appreciate hearing suggestions.
