Finally got our 2009 westlake on the road. We played it safe and stayed fairly close so we could avoid canyons until I felt comfortable with the electric brakes, but it was a great location with a pool and a cute small town nearby. We had a blast, but it brought up some questions. I'm a single mom of a 13 year old girl and I am muddling through and the repairs and such myself. This forum has been indispensable in this journey! Here are the new questions I came across: Hot water heater: I am getting the impression the hot water runs only on propane. Is that right? I'm nervous to start up the gas. How dangerous would it be to test the hot water if I haven't had the system checked? Water pump: it has been sitting empty for quite some time. When I turned on rhe hotel faucet (testing for heat on shore power) the water was spurting even after running it for 5 minutes. Is this to be expected? Ac: a portable ac is not going to be optional. It was so hot in this 100 degree weather! The PO said he had a portable unit. It's prewired for AC. There is a GFCI outlet right under the cabinet where he said he put his next to the galley. There is a standard outlet a few inches away. Is it safe to assume the GFCI outlet is ok to use for AC, or is there work that needs done such as new fuses? Or is there somewhere else all together I should plug it in? Thanks for any help you can offer!
