I've been putting this off, not wanting to remove the heater.
I'm going to try GaeTim's method.
Hot water heater support....

Tim did you take any pictures?

I haven't had a chance to look at this on our '02 GT325. Daughter and room-mate are using it this week, but will be in one place (soccer tournament). If it's a gotcha on rigs that old, I'll have to take a closer look when we get it back.

I managed to take a few pics just before it down-pored today. You can see the green 2x4 on either side of the heater base extending from front to back and the cross wedges or spacers I used to distribute the weight. I did this while keeping the tank in place and the only thing that took a bit of time is to make the right size wedges/spacers to level the tank and to make it line up with the outer trim that it's screwed to.

I also made up some brackets to hold the door in place, the "L" brackets were pulled out from the holes where they were mounted and so I welded them to corner brackets I got at Lowes and will mount them using better and more self tapping screws...you can see beside the new bracket were the original brackets were.

Hope this helps, let us know how it went

Tim

THANK you for the picks!
They will really help.

We (DW, me and the 360) are in CO. for the summer. We're taking the car home for a week, I'll get my saw some wood and brackets then.

Doesn't look too bad.

Thanks again

Thumbs up

No problem, I just noticed the pics are on their side, sorry about that...lol

If someone has a better idea on how to hold the door in place then please share cause even though I fixed up the brackets I'm still a bit Leary about them holding.

Anyway abjb, good luck, like I said the worst part is getting it level so it will align with the trim on the door.

Let us know how it went..

Tim

Charlie, Thanks I'm going to check mine right away. I can bet I have to do the same fix just like the headlamp ground.
