I only see one vent for both the plumbing and the hot water heater. In houses vent pipes for water and exhast pipes for carbon monoxide from water heater are separate. Are these two combined in a trailer or is that heater already electric? I would like to use an electric tankless on demand hot water heater so that I don't need to worry about the exhaust make use of the wasted space where the tank is. Any reccomendations for brand and model?

Also, has anyone heard of those stainless steel incinerator toilets that don't require holding tank for waste water and what are your thoughts?

First off, slow down and don't keep hitting the post button. 8?)

Secondly, use the Search feature of the forum. Most of your questions have already been answered by smart people.

Thirdly, separate your questions by category and try to post only one or two questions per post.

Ha ha ha ha - all been there done that - Posting I am refering too.

And quite frankly not everyone has 100's of house to research through tons of threads - especially at this forum - where many times to get to the point you have to wade through some pretty weird antics of most

Also that is what the moderators do???? correct the newbies fauxpaws - meow

So don't feel slighted Maya - just keep going ask away - and those who have the time will provide you with the answers you are looking for - or will at least provide you with a link to a good thread that can answer your questions.

You might want to back up a bit and ask yourself what type of camping you will be doing with your trailer - then purchase and install the systems best suited - ie. full hookups all the time, boondocking, - seasonal spot at a trailer park etc.

And of course when you are ready flood the questions you can give the potential answering parties a bit of back ground as to your needs or chosen needs.

But most importantly - NEVER stop asking questions!!!! fire away - what is that commercial - "in a perfect world" this forum would never have a repeated questions

Welcome to the forums and good luck with your restoration!

Maya posted the identical text in 3 different places. It's a lot easier to edit that first post to fit the parent thread than to later unsnarl a mishmash of resulting off-subject posts. Every bit of the textis still there, but in the appropriate placees.

Ok, so I'll try to answer your question about venting...If your water heater is the original or a similiar replacement, you have a propane water heater, with a 6 gallon holding tank. The propane exhaust should be vented out the side of the trailer, not thru a vent pipe. The actual door to the WH will have the vent built into it.

Incinerator toilets don't seem to be catching on with RV'ers or Airstreamers. I seem to remember a post a while back... Try searching on it, I don't remember who started the post.
