Dometic water heater hot/cold inlet question

Im replacing the original water heater tank on my Dutchman motor home (1997)

The model originally is G6A-8E that is now 96212 and even came with a replacement door!


What is the female thread size on the back of the tank?

I need elbows that will convert to 3/8ths male so i can reassemble the plumbing hot and cold and mix valve that. Remaking with all new connectors,valves and tubing.

Thanks in advanced. Im not sure if its 1/2 or 3/4th inch.

For all Dometic water heaters the output and input are female 1/2" NPT bungs

Awesome, I was able to find the exact part from my old one I had to crank out (they used glue or something to prevent leaking, why not just white teflon tape?

Anyhow After cranking those out, I was able to get the exact new parts to install on the new water heater. now to assemble the plumbing and crimp everything together.
