Insulation

Anyone know of any precautions to take when adding extra insulation around the water heater? I have a 24ft fourwinds with the heater under the bench seat. I'm also looking at putting 2 inch foil backed Styrofoam on the back wall of the bed to stop all of that heat coming through the back wall and covering the inside with cloth wallpaper. FYI I keep 2 moisture outs in the rv all the time so not sure if back wall would create a problem. Live and camp in Florida and really trying to keep the heat out

Two questions:
1. Have you ever checked the actual temperatures within that compartment?
2. How much space; will there be between your generator, and the insulation that you are adding to that compartment?

Good luck with this project; please let us know the results!

It gets to be 95+. I'm not insulating the generator and the water heater is nowhere near the generator.

Sorry: that was just a brain-fart.
I meant to say "water heater"; but my brain took a left turn!

Finished the project. Called manufacturer and added more Styrofoam board around water heater and boxed it in. No more hot seat lol. Completely insulated below bed and stuffed batted insulation through opening and got behind shower. New fresh water line with hangers so it will drain and not get fill of mold again. Insulated the last few cabinets around the bed. Walls and ceilings of cabinets. So now all cabinets are insulated on outer walls. Keeps a lot of heat out. Just have to go Tuesday get new mattress and glue new headboard up that's made of 2 inch Styrofoam. Finally ready to hit the road again, the keys sounds relaxing.Click image for larger version
