Toastie, you hit all those correctly(no doubt you would), but have you not wondered why red is not right? I wonder this every time I wire something up. I also always think black should be the negative. In our language, black has so many negative connotations.

Wiring was my biggest challenge, these 2 charts and the forum really helped.

I have that same chart printed off and hanging on the wall. I follow it religiously. I just wonder why the colors are chosen as they are. Red on right sounds better than red on left. Brown on ground. White hot. These are just what seems logical to me. I follow black= charge, white=ground, blue= brakes, green= running, red=left, brown=right, and yellow is always looking for something to do.

As you know, your doing a great job. Godspeed.

Started putting the finish touches on the plumbing. The hot water tank will be electrical only, not want to cut a large hole for propane and 100% of our camping there is always electricity. Tank will set in a drip pan with a valve to drain as shown in the pictures.

Toastie... do you have a link to buy those mirrors? I searched "General RV" but didn't find them.
Thanks!

We bought them at General RV - Birch Run Michigan RV Dealer , I would give them a call, she told me that they just got these in and are selling like hot cakes. The had only one large set left. She also gave me 10% off.

A few other places:

Hi Toastie,
What water heater did you go with? It looks like it might be a dual electric/propane unit just with the propane not hooked up. Is that right?

Toastie, having a hard time finding pricing on the mirrors. The Milenco site takes you to a dealer in New York State. The General RV search doesn't bring them up. Mind telling what the price range is on these?

Great idea putting the pan under the WH. I'm going to steal that idea from you.

Yes, its model Suburban SW6DE 6 gallons, you have 2 completed separate systems, I removed all propane components. Did a test run and was very happy with results, had hot water in about 20 minutes with just a flip of the little built in switch.

Found a home for the water pump, it’s a Flojet 2840 series water booster system designed to provide steady water pressure and a generous water flow. The pump is fully automatic with built-in switch and check valve to maintain system pressure, 40 psi. Also added a check valve between the cold and hot line going into the hot water tank. You can see the copper runs are very short, just 2 small runs and the shower, sink and toilet are done. The plan is to be able to take the pump out and with the waterless traps just blow the lines out and not to go with the antifreeze for winter.

Finished the bed today, all pieces are 3/4” plywood turned on edge. Each piece interlock’s and will be very easy to remove hot water, fresh water and pump. The fresh water tank will only be used on one of our camping outing, after that, it will be removed for cleaning and storage each year.
