Michael: I'm assuming you are going to be operating your food vehicle in California. If that's the case, your water heater setup will not suffice. Firstly, you do indeed need hot water for hand washing in addition to washing all your cooking and food prep utensil. Also, you only need two sinks for washing utensils and a separate sink for hand washing. What you need is 120 degreeF water for those sinks. If you have a source of potable water that can feed water to your vehicle that would be a good start. From that point, you have to decide what kind of water heater you'll need. To further clarify the sink requirement, only if you have what is called" multiuse utensils" do you need 3 sinks. Multiuse utensils are generally utensils that are offered to the public to use while dining and need to be sanitized afterwards. Think plates, knives, forks, spoons etc. Throwaway plastic and paper utensils are called "single service" and, being throwaway, do not have to be sanitized.

ernie1, we are in Colorado, not California. I guess I will have to find out more detail on rules in Colorado.

Yes that would be wise although you'll find that code requirements are not much different. California tends to have the more rigid standards. Good luck.
