PEX + '68 Overlander Hot Water Heater Piping Conversion Problem
My "plan" is to bring in a PEX hot water line from our house and via sharkbite fittings and shut off/on valves, be able to connect to our homes hot water line while beached at home and disconnect/revert to the AS's hot water heater when traveling. (Hopefully the diagram pic makes sense).
- The original copper lines are not .62" OD (PEX 1/2" Di) but instead the copper lines are a smaller .049" OD.
- Im not a plumber (although I play one on TV with SharkBite and PEX lol)
- Does Sharkbite (or similar company) make a fitting that I can replace the thread-on connectors into the hot water tank, that accept a standard 1/2" PEX tubing?
I have plenty of other pics and inner diameter readings if needed.
Im open to sweat welding different diameter copper pipe if its the only option to get me to stanard 1/2" diameter piping... and is even possible. But hoping for solution with less flames involved!J
Any other options anyone can suggest?
