I have been doing research for my motorhome and there are other makes that have better specifications than the Girard. The RV 500 and Attwood also have tankless water heaters but they are more expensive than the Girard. The RV 500 is about $1000.00 and the Attwood is around $800.00 plus installation and painting of the new cover. What I have found with the Girard is the water flow controls the temperature and the other 2, not so much.

I have had my Girard for 2 summers love it. Do not touch the cold water , if you want warm turn the hot on for more flow. I will repeat do not touch the cold. And set to low for lower temp

We put one in our Teton and the day we purchased or FR we ordered one. The water flow rate is the easiest way to regulate the temperature, the faster the water the less heat it gets, the slower the water the more time it spends over the flame. In our Teton it didn't have separate hot and cold handles so the water was warm at best, solution= I disconected and capped all the cold lines so ONLY the hot side ran and we used the temperature switch to regulate how hot the water was. As a not we live in ours full time and are hooked to park flow. PS I have a 2011 10 gallon we just took out I will part with ( north Oregon coast)

Honestly tried everything to make it work, but no luck. Maybe 30 second hot water following by just lukewarm water and lot of water to waste. I already purchased the 6 gallon Suburban to replace this selling such product should be in bankruptcy. LOL
