For those that might be interested, Truma sent me some certificates to receive a $50 debit card when you register your Truma continuous HW heater to give to friends. If interested send me your email address and I'll send you a cpupon.

I researched some of the electric on demand hot water heaters. Wow the smallest ones I could find produced 1.97 gpm and were 240v and used 11000 watts. WOW!

I found one 120v but it says point of use as in for one sink or just the shower but they don't even make a claim for what it can produce per minute

20 Gallon HW tank

Seems the thread and question got hijacked, BAD by those that did not read your question.

Are you sure the tank has been filled with water?
Is your park connection electric connection 120VAC with how many AMPS?
Your hot water tank may be 120V or it may be wired for 220V? You need to check to see how your tank is wired. If it is wired for 220VAC but you are plugged into 120VAC, you tank is working on 1/2 the volts. I believe this may be your problem.

This would be the first step to check is the correct voltage supply your park
model.

Your shower head type has nothing to do with how long it takes to heat water.

Hi to all. I don't know of any elec. space heaters that could possibly run on 12v. I replaced my elec. 80gal. water heater with a 240V elec. space heater and have a 60A breaker on a dedicated circuit but it heats 5 gal. of the hottest water per minute and supplies my entire 1,700 sq. ft. home with no problem. I would guess that in an RV a gas space heater would be possible though.

50 amps

I looked up your specs for the RV you have, it requires 50 AMPS of service for the hot water tank to work properly. If you are plugged into 30 amp service, this may be your problem.

As someone stated early, check the proper setting for the bypass valves for the hot water tank.

Take a cool as you can stand shower and turn up the temp of the tank thermostat. Both of these will help significantly. You may also have 600-800 watt element. Increase its size to what breaker/wiring will allow. Be aware that a 240 volt element run on 120 volts will only provide 1/4 the 240 volt watts and probably 90% of the elements sold are rated home use which are 240 v.
