Pix of '65 Water heater access door?

Does anyone have a pix of access door opened on 65 overlander?

When I purchased this unit, the PO had an electric WH in place, with a wooden plate screwed into opening.

I have new Atwood to replace electric unit, but it seems to be a different size than opening I have.

I am trying to see how the access door works, etc, so I can repair this system.

The outer part of new water heaters are smaller that the originals.

All you need to do, is make an adapter plate to completely cover up the original opening.

Then cut a new, but smaller hole in the new plate, for the new water heater.

There is no other choice.

Physical Therapy, starts tomorrow.

Getting old is a bummer, but not too bad when you consider the alternative.
