Maybe if someone does the mod here on the EscapeForum, the person will do a detailed writeup with pictures too... that would be great!
I installed one of these today. The 600w model fits in my Suburban 6 gallon dsi. Works well, but takes an hour to heat up the tank.
Also discovered that there is a 120v receptacle in the fridge flue, where the fridge is plugged in. I plugged in the electrical heater element on the other available outlet. Could be helpful to know for folks who may be considering the outside 120v option on the driver side of the trailer.
