A122 hot water heater reset switch

I hate having to crawl under the dinette in my A122 to hit the hot water heater reset switch. Has anyone moved it to a more accessible location?

Not a bad idea, and on my early production model my water pump switch is in the same area and I intend to move that this spring.

I believe it's the on/off switch and it works as a reset if the burner lockout trips--never had that happen yet, but vaguely recall something about a reset in one of the manuals.

After opening everything up I think I'll just move the switch over near the water pump switch. It would be easy to get to and I shouldn't have to splice in longer wires. I have had to reset the hot water heater a time or two and, since we never have the dinette set up and store stuff under the table, it's always a pain to pull everything out and crawl under there to reach the switch.

A word of warning for anyone reading who might not be aware:
Located along the same side as the water heater and gas furnace is the power converter.
The converter has a fan that is vented into the camper.
This fan and vent keeps the converter from overheating when plugged into shore power (110V, AC power, household current, hydro or whatever term you use).

Use caution when storing items under the dinette against the driver's side.
Allow plenty of air flow space in front of the converter's vent.

Tis true!
Not only that but if its a wfco converter they have issues with fans and cooling all on there own regardless of obstructions.

Only have had to reset our hot water heater twice and it was no big deal. We no longer use the orignal table that came with our A-126. Smaller table, much more stable with storage. Getting to the reset switch was really never an issue. Kinda like it low and out of the way. Just my 2 cents. LOL
