    Hi, I originally posted this in the electric section but have been advised it may be better to post here, so here I go.

    l'm looking to install this towel rail in my caravan. It's manufactured by Alde for a caravan with a wet heating system and the pipe is 22mm, I'm hoping to fit an electric element in the bottom as I don't have a wet heating system. My query is can anyone advise on whether with it being a dead end pipe that the top will get hot and if this will work any advice on the correct size element to achieve it would be greatly appreciated. I'm not sure if it needs to be a loop to enable convection currents?
    Thanks

    My immediate thought is it needs to be a loop which you won’t achieve with a heated element. May be worth checking in with the manufacturer?

    That was my concern although if it has to be then I'll get some chrome pipe and return the top to a T piece on the bottom
