I have a 2021 Wildwood FSX 190RT
Im looking to put a small shelf in the empty space above the hot water heater.. Does anyone know what clearance is needed above and around the hot water heater? Thanks

Typically the water heater is enclosed in foam and zero clearance from surrounding structures is acceptable. Rear access to the water heater needs to be maintained though.
