'75 Revcon 26' 250-D Class A - $5500 b/o - Rogue Valley, Southern Oregon

This is a very nice limited edition motor coach, a classic that runs great but is in need of some interior - cosmetic work. Nothing major needed besides a new fridge. There is no rot. I am too old,…Continue

Recon Hot Water Heaters

Does anyone have info about the original water heaters in the Revcons? It appears to heat the water while underway or by 110 electricity. My mechanic is trying to figure out where and how this is set up to get hot from the engine. 

I would like to install a tankless LPG and if possible keep both types. Never know where I may end up for days or weeks at a time.

Ever find out how it worked? Probably worked using a water control valve that worked from a lever / switch that let the engine water go through a hot water heater hose (just like heater cores work) to probably a coil that surrounded the hot water tank.

Hiya Franny!

Look at the Whale Seaward S1100... It's what I bought to replace the old Suburban in our motorhome. It holds 11 gallons, runs off of 110 electric AND it has the heat exchanger that circulates hot water from the radiator around the water heaters tank, when your rv's engine is running. BY THE WAY, have your mechanic look for a couple of Y bypass valves on some heater hose running rearward... That's how the water from the radiator gets to the water heater's heat exchanger.
