Re: Removing Hot Water Heater
We recently removed our water heater as well and it was pretty straight forward as Dave says. I found a metric plug at McMaster-Carr for one port and then bought a temp sending unit at Catalinadirect.com. Catalina used the same 3jh2e on their boats and they sell a metric threaded temp sending unit that works with a Teleflex temp gauge.
Since we had to drain the system we pulled the heat exchanger and cleaned out the crud buildup, changed out most of water hoses, and replaced the exhaust riser and elbow. Maybe it is just me, but I'd swear that the water flow increased dramatically exiting the exhaust.
Incidentally, the space created from removing the hot water heater allowed me to install 4 Trojan T105s - I had to lengthen the existing battery compartment opening 2 inches.
