RV Tankless Water Heater Easy Install and Review!

So I need to just use  the jigsaw to finish these cuts real  quick and then this piece  let’s pull it out so we got  so looks like  okay so mm-hmm looks like the I just  didn’t have enough depth on the all my  jigsaw my blade wasn’t long enough so it  didn’t get through this so I’ll use the  high speed to clean this piece this back  piece up and score it and just break it  away  this uh this tubing is just tubing is is  one inch by one and a half so I was able  to cleaning through that which is good  because I was concerned that that I  might be splitting this um this this son  this is going to come up here like this  and we’re going to use those there’s  l-brackets we should be good  okay so my test fit uh we’re in it’s in  there it’s sitting on the thing doesn’t  look quite level I’m not sure about that  year I’m gonna I’m gonna play around  with it and figured it out I certainly  want it to be as levels could be you  know my hand I’m thinking as long as  it’s sitting flush from the platform in  there that it’s probably.

The trailer  being out a level it makes it look makes  it look that way but it’s in the cutout  that I did up top is good once I once I  get the the tube back up here and  secured which I haven’t done yet I’ll be  good  my flange is here cover the opening I  have corner pieces that were put in here  so all these holes for fastening it to  the trailer are going to hit the  aluminum tubing in here so so we’ll be  able to fasten and have a good secure  hold in there so with that I’m gonna  pull it back out  okay and sit over here and then you know  you know these these trailers are not  have to be the best but they got to be  light right so up in here in this  channel between the two the exterior  panel on the interior panel is just  styrofoam so I’m not exactly sure how  I’m gonna get rid of that styrofoam yet  we’re gonna find myself a big  screwdriver maybe a crowbar or something  but I’m gonna I’m gonna try to scrape  away and I have my shot back out here  I’m gonna try to scrape away as much of  this styrofoam as I can so that.

So I can  get this this piece of tubing back up in  between there and fasten it up so come  back soon okay  with just a combination of a flathead  screwdriver the aluminum tubing itself I  managed to carve our Channel and this  will fit nicely nicely up in there one  thing I realized is there’s still some  welding on this this vertical tubing  piece so I’m going to use the high speed  grinder try to take out get that on that  well off of there so I have a nice flat  flush surface to to attach those  l-brackets  let me show you what I’m talking about  and sorry these are actually three inch  brackets but I’m going to use these  these three inch brackets like this with  some self-tapping sheet metal screws to  par should do it that will secure it add  up in there nicely and gave us plenty of  surface area to attach our fasteners and  secure the heater up here so with that I  just got some clean up to do some shot  backing and I’ll be back in a few okay  my welds my welds are all knocked down  these this L bracket will sit pretty  flush with that with the vertical piece  so movement do now is we’re gonna put  the I’m gonna put this piece back in now.

I have my holes from the old piece so  I’m gonna put that to the inside and I’m  going to I’m going to turn those to the  back so that no chance of us using those  or enlarging those so we’ll put that  piece back up in there and we’re just  gonna shove it up there it’s tight as  little gun  give us a good push-up see where that is  see how that lines up  because this piece is vertical and this  is a perfect 90 these l-brackets I’m  going to rely on water heaters reviews that to get this piece  lined up in there so with that grab my  trusty cordless and I’m gonna put this  whole bracket in there yeah we’re gonna  hold it up  right – lets  just like that  hey good good  session  it looks to be about level with that the  that existing tube that’s good that’s  what we want instantly  so yeah fastener screw  a pressure  left-handed  do our best here  freshmen  okay so let’s bring it in for a closer  look so you can see in here uh these  corner pieces you see those are now  secured in there and they’re okay and  that gives us a nice upper rib there so  now what we do is I’m gonna go ahead in  a shopback and then apply my butyl tape  and we’re ready to push this thing in  okay.

So I’m ready to start putting my  butyl tape on butyl tape is like a you  know the putty team pretty sick reliable  to like know the old school days your  silly putty but what it will do is do a  nice weather tight seal to to the side  of your camper along along on the strip  now I’m gonna I have a lot of it and I  don’t really have much more use for it  after this so I’m going to use I’m going  to use and fill the entire flange with  the butyl tape whatever tears to the  side and here’s whatever’s just uh  hanging I left there knees up so it’s  pretty slippery sticky pliable just go  ahead and you know just get it on there  stick it on there when you get to the  end just going to use the edge to feel  that that there are corner pieces once  we get up there so we’ll do that yes  here this package close kind of  compressed together so just peel the  backing off it seems a rip sometimes so  killed this world and mm-hmm just go  ahead and get it nice and  what you definitely want is you  definitely want to be covering the  fastener holes with it because he wanted  to you want the fasteners going through  it and you want it to press right where  your basser’s are so I’m going to fill  that fill out like that  back now I have  now I have two good size here top inside.

I’m gonna go ahead and go ahead and do  the same thing on the other side and  then I’ll be ready to put this in and  start passing it up  okay so now I have all the beauty pole  and you see a demo  cover all the area and not leave not  leave anything I sit like I said I had  the butyl tape so I mouse will use it  you know I made sure not to overlap so  there wasn’t any kind of bulging but I  made sure to try to cover it off the  bottom stuff as well so with that we are  ready to push this baby in get it seated  and then we can do our corner pieces and  start start with some fasteners  I’m excited here we go  okay so I have it seated in there not  fully CD efforts in there one thing I’m  going to do is try make sure everything  is evenly spaced is top and bottom I  know good I know on the bottom I’m  sitting on that platform in there so I’m  not gonna have any issues there I want  to do here is I want to try to get this  as centered as possible so about an inch  and a hand here on this side I’m a  little less I’m like an inch and three  eighths so with that I’m gonna try to  want to try to get it over a little bit  more about inch 3/8 and I’ll engineer  there so I’m probably gonna get.

It just  as close as I can I’m not gonna be able  to get it perfect so with that we’re  gonna go ahead and give it a good smush  get that butyl tape seated around there  and get those flanges pressed against so  that you’re in a good spot to have that  fully seated um so with that looks good  it is seated now let’s take a look  closer look my spacing looks pretty good  my corners there you can see and um yeah  looks looks like it’s in there so we’re  just gonna press it in okay yeah before  I start putting fasteners in I’m gonna  go inside and take a quick look just  make every excuse me make sure  everything looks kosher inside before I  before I do anything like fasteners okay  right back  okay so these corner pieces are next  thing and they’re kinda they’re kind of  goofy they don’t really in the  instruction manual give you a good  indication how they’re supposed to go  there’s a whole there’s a whole here on  this flange and there’s a slotted hole  here on this fans best I can figure you  know it’s meant to go like that for some  reason these don’t line up so my  intention here is what we do is I’m  going to use this hole.
