    Solar Water Heater

    I also live full time in my 27' Shasta. I replaced my RV hot water heater with a residental 20 gallon, 110 ac. I tried building a solar water heater last year with 2 100' black heavy duty water hoses. I included 4 ball valves to the in/out puts of the hot water tank. I put brass adaptors (for garden hose treads) on 2 of the ball valves, these go to the hoses, then i attached the others to the cold water input and hot water out put. I took the hoses behind my trailer, coiled them up as tight as i could then just layed them on the ground. Worked great, i used them for a year summer (got really hot) and winter (warm enough to shower). Never had any leaks or problems, only the first few weeks I could smell rubber then the smell went away.

Since I volunteer as a host I move the trailer every 6 months i need to redo it again but the hoses make it easy to break down and put back together quickly. I will try your sliding door idea this time. Sounds like i could use the sliding doors for the solar panels i am building right now. Thank for your ideas, I will use the WSV and termo this time as well. Great job.
