    Super easy. Shut off gas valve. Shut off water fill valve. Hook a hose to the drain valve at the bottom and run to a drain/ sink. Open the drain valve open a hot water valve at a sink or tub somewhere to relieve air pressure. Crack the pipe fittings on top open. Pop the exhaust vent off the tank. Drag it out.

    If you can find a unit that the fittings are the same height so you don’t have to mess with the water lines. Install by screwing everything together, make sure you use gas rated/ safe pipe seal tape or goop. If you can’t find an exact match you’ll need to either cut and solder on new fittings or extensions to make it fit. Easier than it sounds. Sweat soldering is as easy as it gets.
    Once it’s up and running use soapy water spray to check for bubbles on gas lines so you don’t die.

    First time doing it should take you about half a day and likely one trip to the store.

    Do yourself a favor and get a pair of these flexible water connectors - then you don't have to worry about where the water connections are & you're free to get any brand tank you want.

    Your gas supply should also have a flexible connection as well.

    Get a quote and don’t pay “some dude” hourly to take his time. $300 in labor isn’t a lot for a company to charge from doing everything from getting a heater that they will warranty, to getting a permit, to installing it, to getting rid of the old one. Some of us are professionals that spent 4 years in trade school to learn how to do our trade, and not dumbasses that stink and drive piece of shit vans that leak oil all over your driveway and leave with gas leaking in your house. $70 an hour is the going rate but it’s cheap compared to other professions. A lot of things come out of that $70 every hour, rant over, carry on

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
