Anyone in the north area do aluminum welding? I have a hole or split in my RV hot water tank that needs to be repaired. I will be taking the tank out of the RV tomorrow to get a better idea how bad it is.

Slide it by, I can probably TIG it.
It needs to be as clean as possible.

Thanks Bert. I'll see you after I pull it.

Don't be surprised if it's split wide open (if it froze).

Probably better to just replace it.

And if it is a hot water tank it is more than likely a pressure vessel.

If it gives ya shit, I have off the wall alloy and set up for gas welding also.

Aluminum can be such a beeeotch sometimes.
