"Ric, does the 2 gal electric water heater produce enough hot water for a shower? If so, it may be a good addition to supplement the Girard. How would the water lines be run?"

We've not installed this, but are looking at it. We also are using the tea kettle approach to conserving water.

My understanding is that the 2 gallon 110 volt hot water heater would be installed in the hot water line right under the sink. Hot water would be right now and 2 gallons of hot water would always be supplied. I can invision having one under the bathroom sink and under the kitchen sink.

If installation is too difficult, I'm sure a plumber could do it.

jestew3, in their zeal to improve that attachment of house to cab they did indeed drill into PS fuel tank.

HW heater has been installed. Control for elec and propane is in bathroom as before. They aren't done fixing everything (screws through floor. main TV doesn't work, paint from WH install) so I can't say how well they did with HW heater install or how we like it. I think it will be at least 2 more weeks before I get it back.

To do dishes, we have been using a combination of vinigar and water in a spray bottle for years in the TT. We got the idea to use it from another dry-camper camper. We wipe the dish with a paper towel to remove any food particles and then spray wipe it and then wipe dry it. You do not have to worry about hot water in the kitchen or filling the gray tank this way. We do use paper plates now, but the pots and pans are sprayed.

Don,

I read your reply to my bride of 43 years. Needless to say, the response is not something I should put in print.

From me, thank you for the offer of advise. From my wife, not really so much. She really likes hot water.
