I had to go back on the OP's previous posts to check what Moho model he had.
To the OP. Please include your model and year in your profile so we can help without searching to much. It's very helpful to have that info available.
Wondering how the WH is doing. And luck in figuring it out?

Well on demand then-- just a big learning curve!! I went thru this and with some replacement parts all working OK now. Mine is a gen II Girard-- Big thing is to try and use water on hot only then adjust your settings to work with that.

Bad thing on mine is outside temp -income water pressure- all affect it-- In this park the water pressure can change depending on what the demand in the park is ??

I like the sound of those two small hot water tanks !!!

IKR! I didn't mention the dual water pumps though. 2 showers at once!

I'm not sure we could get 2 people in either shower. Drop the soap, and someone would have to get out!

On the Atwood I find setting the temp to a hot setting works great. The Atwood works different than the Gerard. I have my Atwood set hot. To hot to use just hot water. I then mix cold in with it more similar to a conventional water heater.
With the Gerard this would not work.

Phil; You must have started with a Girard Gen I. With the install of the Atwood, did the outside door have to be changed?

I did start with a Gen l then to a Gen ll. With the Atwood I did need a new door. I don't know how the Gen 3 works first hand. I hear great reviews about it. I will say the Atwood is a huge improvement over Gen 2.

My Girard Gen 2 works the way it should. Only complaint is it is noisy. Vibrates like heck.

If the Gen II is vibrating, I would suggest taking a quick look at the exhaust fan to be sure the blade isn't broken. That's the only moving part in the entire heater.
