Welcome! The benefits of the diesel pusher far outweigh the gasser. Air suspension ride, the rear mounted engine is extremely quiet. Maintenance intervals are much farther apart than a gasser.
The Girard on demand hot water heater can get finicky and needs some patience. You need to start the hot water draw and listen for the unit to start. Reduce the flow to a slow flow and the hot water will get there. There is an adjustment knob in the medicine cabinet to adjust the flame height. I've found that this adjustment is important for temperature variations on +/- 10° ambient. Turn the shower on and adjust the temp to you liking. This does it for us. By the way we are full timers.
I am a second Berkshire owner and had Girard gen II heaters on both units. They are just ok. The Atwood's are getting better reViews but even those units are having issues.
I can't imagine you being disappointed with the Berkshire.
