It's OK, you don't have to be impressed....I still like mine...

Just don't see what is so great about them is all I'm saying. Just an expensive shower head that sprays water just like the factory one.

2 - 2.5 gallons a min for 7 mins = 14 - 18 gallons. So you would end up with cool water after 7 mins.

yep electric only, cant get teen girls to navy shower, can I go electric tankless or swap to propane heater? I would think that overnight heating wife could take a 7 minute shower in morning without going cold.

Yes but like above, 7 minutes and out of water.. Then a while to recover.

You, AND your wife need to learn how to take a "GI shower". Get wet, turn water off, soap up, wash hair, whatever, turn water back on to rinse off. Plenty of water for 2 or more showers when you understand this technique.
Even a propane HWH will not provide hot water for both of you if the 1st person takes a 7 minute shower.
SORRY, that's just the facts of owning/living in a RV!!!
Yep, I agree 100%. We limit our showers to 1 minute of continuous running water about 2 to 2.5 gallons. Plenty of hot water and enough to get clean but then again we dry camp and water is at a premium.

Remember that you are heating with a 120v vs 240 also the heating element is smaller. You maybe able to swap out to a higher wattage element for 120v that may help with shorter recovery time. Another idea is to use a 1.5 gpm shower head. JMHO

Teen girls

If you can't get them to change their showering habits, there is little you can do to ameliorate the issue.

RV tankless water heater

Is there such a thing as a tankless water heater for an RV? (preferably propane)

There is...the neighbor's new River Stone has one. I looked it up out of curiosity a few weeks ago. A little north of $600 I believe.
