Our hot water
tank is right under our bunk, and as such when we motor
anywhere, the heat build up in the cabin
is significant. We cruise
in hot climates anyway so this extra radiated heat is not welcome.
I have lagged the heater with foam to try and keep the radiated heat down, but not enough.
Has anyone fitted a simple stop valve in their engine coolant
pipe that feeds the water
heater, to stop the coolant
from ever getting to the hot water tank? This way we can control if we want hot water or not!
I cannot think of any problems, but just incase.....
Thanks in advance
