I have had three tankless WH's and although I have had some issues the industry is responding and making them better. The Atwood unit I have now is excellent. It works fantastic and I would hate to be without it. Not sure what unit you are talking about but I assume you don't have one. It sounds like you are comparing residential tankless WH and the RV type.

The Atwood WH is much much better than the Gerard gen I or 2. I have not used the Gen 3 but I hear it is the best. I have had the Gen 1&2and have used the Atwood now for 5 months full time. It's not perfect but works really well.
I thought you had yours all fixed and working properly?

Odd that Mike didn't know about it. Hope the repairs are going well.

We were talking about the Gen 3 on the Berkshire FB page and I couldn't remember who had it. Glad it's working good for you. The spec's look great.

I agree with Phil.... We love our Atwood... Never misfires and we have smoking hot water in 25 seconds every time....and for hours on end! I just worry about gas leaks so want to know what the recall is about!!!

The link posted didn't say anything about a gas link so hopefully that's not it. It said the water could get hot enough to turn to steam and cause a burn. It sounds like they have a high limit temperature issue.

I wonder if this is the unit my parents had in their shockwave. They took it in 2or3 times for no hot water. The last time the dealership insinuated they just didnt know how to use it. They traded it off that day at another dealer.
