I guess we missed the 12 inch PEX requirement when we did mine, and several others. Does it deteriorate from the heat? Or is it just some code thing? We did mine back in 2011 and have put many months of service on since then with no issues.

It's residential code - probably not a bad idea. Check the specs on the PEX probably printed on it.

I connected to the hot side with a braided stainless water heater hose and tied it in to the existing copper, I did use cold water pex on the cold side, it's been there a long time now.

I did a little reading and it seems the copper requirement is for gas units due to the proximity of the flue pipe. So an electric unit should not present any issues. Comments?

In our area residential codes are by township and don't necessarily follow rhyme or reason.

Moving right along ...

Got some Reflectrix insulation at Maynards - double bubble foil sandwich. Seemed appropriate to replace the old (whatever it was) between the engine cover and flooring. Cut, stained, and screwed down a 3/4" marine plywood replacement floor section. It had a few twists and turns to it so made a template pattern first. Will also be needing a rectangular piece over the engine hatch - might not even screw it down - it's not going anywhere. Also made up a couple simple brackets to hold the inside wall of the closet up without needing the front wall. Shims held everything snuggly until I could screw the brackets in place. I'm not going to re-install that front wall / door panel until I'm double extra good and sure everything is OK inside - not wanting to do it twice.
