Oh my God! There's a hole in my floor! A freaking rat sized hole! What had I done?! All part of the process of installing tank heaters.
I'm a Southern Girl at heart; sweet tea and iced water run through my veins. Unfortunately Belle (my camper) is a bit southern too and defaults to frozen water with the tiniest little temperature drop. Since we're wintering in Washington this year, that's a problem.
Freezing weather creates special problems for RV water systems. Some campers have enclosed bay areas for water hookups. Some of those bay areas are even heated. I have neither heat nor enclosed bay. All of my water hookups hang right off the side of my camper. Exposed to all the elements. It's a winter wonderland nightmare.
Ice water is great in restaurants. Super refreshing on a hot summer day. Not nearly as much fun frozen in your drinking water hose when the only thing you want in the world is a hot cup of coffee. Let's work together to make sure that doesn't happen. We're going to build a heated fresh water hose.
Do you ever have those projects that seem daunting until you get started? Or projects that keep getting pushed down the priority list by calamity? This was that project.
