RB-50 Water Heater

In an RB-50, where exactly is the propane water heater installed? I'm trying to figure out if there's a configuration that won't eat into the rear trunk area. Is this possible?

Thanks,

In our EB-50, it is in the passenger side (left) rear corner. It extends to the back door. In front of it on the same side is the inverter.

If your SMB has a trunk you have bigger problems than where to put a water heater...

Mine is an EB too, same water heater location, but the air heater shares the front of that space. Next to the bench under the driver side closets (all the way forward in that space) would probably be a good spot if you want to preserve the under-the-bench space.

Do you have an English SMB with right hand drive?

My passenger side is on the right, not the left (looking forwards that is). How about we call it starboard?
