I had some back and forth with the health department today and I need to change my hot water heater. If I go with a Bosh Arista GL6+ it will suite their needs but it will be too large to fit under the sink and use too much electricity.
I have no choice but to go with a propane water heater but my issues are that my sink is on the serving side and I do not want to vent out the serving side. As a customer could get burned, etc. Options:
- I could have a new regulator, small propane tank and new lines run on the serving side rear of the truck, run the lines inside and have the LP water heater mounted on the inside rear wall (same wall that the LP tank is on the outside of) and vented outside above the LP tank. Then run the water lines to an from the heater from underneath the sink which will be 4' away.
- Install the water heater on the non-serving side and tap into the existing LP line and vent out of the side wall but then it will be a pain to run the water lines to and from the other side of the truck.
All the electric units use too much power and I do not want to buy a huge Honda EU6500 generator for 4K. I had to abandon my inverter and battery bank as this will not work in the long run. So they are for sale if anyone is interested.
This is my only construction issue that the county pointed out. Any ideas? This is a pain in the a**.
I was thinking of just buying 2 Powerhouse PH2700PRi Inverter Generators as these can be chained in parallel and will fit nicely on the rear bumper or in my battery bay compartment. And this will give me 5400W to work with. All my other equipment, including the 13000 BTU AC uint use only 2,978W, leaving me with 2422W for the water heater. The problem is that all the electric unit that I see pull at least 3KW.
I know I will not have the heater on all the time, only when needed and the AC will not be on all the time but still....
