Laws regarding water heaters
 
We have a double decker bus that has a fairly large wall space between the back window of the upper floor and a door of the lower floor. We are mounting a split mini air conditioner there because the roof is not an option for a roof mount unit being 13' ft up and unlikely to remain there.

I am wondering if there are any laws that would prevent us from mounting a tankless outdoor water heater? It is about 8 feet up but it is mounted to the back of the bus and will require propane. The water heater is an eccotemp and I will post a picture if needed.

Look in the administrative section here and find "Tips" on locating info on this forum. Many people have used the Ecotemp heaters and posted on the forum. Jack

Love my Eccotemp L5!!!
but I'd go L10 or their 110/propane designed for indoor use with vent.

I actually got the L10, but I wasn't aware it was able to be used inside at all.

I don't think the manufacturer endorses indoor use for L5 or L10...
Their 110 volt has a powered exhaust, if I'm not mistaken.

If I used the L10 indoors... It would be on an outside wall and vented directly behind it.
