Apr. 19,2011---Yipeeee----two things now seem to be working okay. Finished installing the ground fault breaker for the ice maker on the flybridge. Once the unit started running a water leak developed. Pulled the unit out to get into the back where a small line was out of it's connection. Reinstalled and began making ice. Made another trip (30 miles each way) to Paducah. Found the brass fittings at Home Depot to get the water heater back in service. Again spent time in the crawl space that we call the basement. By the time the hot water tank was refitted and put into service, Keith and I both had sore knees and elbows from the ackward working space. However, Maryann is very proud of us for making hot water available on the boat for doing dishes and other cleaning. Yipeeeeee

I'm thrilled you're back for another season and look forward to following you on your journey.

If you had it to do over again, would fix the hot water heater or just replace it?

Getting it all drained was the main headache. Would have to drain the heater in either case. Turned out ok just replacing the valve and fittings.
