I'm sure you know this already but... Do all of the electrical work (like running wires) before finishing the walls. Plumbing as well.

Heard. Thank you but yes im doing that now. Any suggestions on breakerz to use or gauge wiring or ways to set evedything up...tricks or tips. And another question....i have an older 3.5gallon insinkerator water heater and a newer insinkerator(instant W.H.) this one plastic. Both AC. Would these be ok to use for my 270. The older (and bigger) one for shower or main heater and the smaller for sinks..... What kinda pipe should i use pvc? White gray or black haha sorry for all tge questions. All i have is the original holding tanks bfresh and black and wanting to install a grey... And ive got three solar panels. One 3×5 and two 2×2... That im wanting to set up... Lots of fun work ahead and im not being sarcastic i really enjoy working on this bus....

I would use pex for the piping, very flexible, you can get the tool and fittings at any lowes. if it happens to freeze it will not burst. very simple to use. makes a plumber out of everyone. all you need is to supply the butt "crack"
