Great build! More detail on the water heater that you went with. I may have found teh one I will use but not sure. I found a 4 gallon 110v unit at Home Depot by Ariston. It is the GL4S model. I haven't check the reviews yet but the size and price seemed right.

HB, thank you.
I tried 2 of the HD ones you are considering, in the 6 gal size but they BOTH leaked after install. 1 leaked within the insulating jacked and 1 leaked at the fittings. HD did refund w/o question.
I went to LOWES and got a 6 gal. conventional 120v unit and am very pleased.

Thanks for the input. I won't bother with the original idea then. I prefer tried and true. Thats the good thing about this forum.

I changed oil to TSC Traveller 10-40 and right away I have a quieter idle and fast idle.

No idea what oil the PO used but I sure like this so far.

There are any number of "home" appliances that will work just fine in RV's, but bear in mind, none of them were designed to be bounced around day in and day out and stay together. The better quality RV equipment will. Especially important with anything that is holding fluids.

Cracks me up!! The note above the bus says that it has been resized! Looks great though. My grandkids would love it.

FWIW, our bus has the hot WX package; 2 AC units, white roof, tinted windows and extra insulation.

Today it was parked in direct sun, all windows and doors shut all day. 1/2 the curtains were open. No AC or fans on. The rear of the bus was facing the SW.

Ambient high temp. was 78.8 with a slight breeze, at that temp. inside was 78.5.
