Hi all. I was late in winterizing our camper and the 6 gallon aluminum hot water tank has a 10" crack in it. It's a 2017, 13 footer that we bought new. I called Scamp and they informed me they use a 4 gallon system now and that the hole in the size of our camper is too large to fit the new unit. The model we have is an Atwood G6A-7.
Has anyone taken one of these out? Can it be done from the inside, separate the tank from the heater and pull it up through the hatch, or do I have to remove the rivets and pull it out from the outside with the heating unit? I found a welder who claims he can weld aluminum, so I am hoping he can repair the tank.
Also the water lines look to be press fitted on, with no way of tightening or loosening them. Should they be cut and replaced with adjustable clamps. Has anyone found a replacement tank that can be used? I would purchase another tank if I could find one. Thanks in advance for any ideas or solutions you can offer. Anthony.
