gen 2 has the rotating dial knob to control the temperature. in my berkshire 390bh, that dial is in the bathroom behind the mirror in the cabinet. in warm places, my gen 2 worked great. endless hotwater like you would expect. in cold places, with snow on the ground and water not frozen, i get luke warm water at best. no matter what i did. water pressure and flow was great and ideal. just the heater couldn't keep up.
the gen 3 has the digital control pad and can show fault codes and such. it has the water pressure valve to control how much cold water goes into it. many have reported the gen 1 and gen 2 models never were able to perform to expectations, but once they got a gen 3, they had hot water like they expected in all sorts of conditions.
as in the case of many products, the newer generation items usually are better than their predecessors.. i'm hoping for similar results as others.
since my gen 2 died this past winter, i'm upgrading it to replace the broken gen 2.
