I'm in the middle of renovating our 19'. We have taken out all the dinette, water, electrical box and cabinetry. I'm looking at my water heater and the exterior access has a hole rusted clean through about an inch across. Is the "flange" that connects the heater to the trailer a replaceable part or is it time for a whole new unit? It looks like I can replace the whole unit from the outside of the trailer. Is there any reason why I should do it NOW while the cabinets are out? Can I patch it and replace it later? We have a 2000 19 deluxe. Gas only, I'm assuming it is the same as wat they are still putting in it today. Atwood G6A-7. I'm not opposed to replacing it but if it is just a matter of replacing the flange that'd be great.
