Maybe where you live itís different, but thatís just my take on things from the inside, YMMV and yes I talk bad about the designers/engineers on a daily basis.
Totally agree. I'd venture to say that the $4 city water cap means more to a young family struggling to make ends end meet buying a 14' popup than the couple that buys the 1/2 million dollar motor home.

I may end up doing something like that. I looked under the bed. There was plenty of room so they could have moved the intake very easily.

No. They said they would take off the bug screen and see how that works. That’s not a solution I don’t think.

Picture of my solution to the melting problem

So, I wanted to share my solution to the melting problem I had. I ran the hot water heater a number of times this weekend and this arrangement worked just fine.

Sorry about the picture rotation. Not sure why it came out that way.
