Yep, eyeballed the tires to make sure. I was told one could order with the gas range/oven instead of the induction cooktop. That would be my choice as I use iron cookware.

Depends on who you talk to about tankless. Some folks love them and some hate them.

We have one and will never have another RV without one! Unlimited hot water when at hookups and no wait time between showers. We use ours at hookups and boondocking.. no problems.

We have seen none of the problems others talk about: wait time before hot water shows up (ours is about 3-4 seconds), not enough pressure (never had that problem after installing a oxygenics shower head), having to turn the hot water down to increase heat (not a factor), surging temperatures (never had that problem).

Our friends who had one and didn't like it never gave it a chance. Is it a little different to operate? Slightly... but even my young grandkids have no problem with it. You want hotter water.. turn down the flow rate a little (we do it with the shower head or the hot water knob.

So don't let it be a deciding factor in a purchase. To us it is a definite upgrade!

Champagne Cookware

Any cookware that a magnet clings to will work on top of an induction cooktop. Including iron, steel, etc.... induction cooktop, a coil of copper wire is placed under the cooking pot, under the glass and a current is passed through it. The resulting oscillating magnetic field induces a magnetic flux which repeatedly magnetises the pot, treating it like the magnetic core of a transformer. That produces large currents in the pot, which because of the resistance of the pot, heats it. Get used to it, this is probably the future of RV cooking. No wasted heat, no propane, no excessive interior heating, no burning, efficient and functional. It really makes sense and can run off of solar powered batteries.

Plus you forgot to mention no flame to get blown out from the ceiling fan

How many watts does the induction cooktop pull? The induction cooktop does have some good features, kids can't get burned with it. I have the batteries but I don't know about the watts. I want to install a microwave/convection oven and DW wouldn't have to use the oven.

Great info! It isn't the heating equation I am concerned about, even though I learned alot with your explanation. iIt's a concern with scratching or breaking/ cracking the surface with the weight of the iron skillet if I drop it. Both units are equipped with a 200w solar panel...makes sense.

I hate it so far......because I have NO HOT WATER! Glad everyone is on high pressure campsites, because that is required for this to work at all. I wasn't, and 10 days of cold water.

Now......I WISH IT WORKED, because as NM says, it's a great idea! So I'll order the oxygenics shower head (I HOPE these are metal and not the OEM 'plastic painted chrome color' stuff). If that helps shower, fine. But the issue is same in kitchen.........so maybe I need to replace the kitchen faucet...........(Which leaks anyway and is always a POC)......

Sigh.

I (I HOPE these are metal and not the OEM 'plastic painted chrome color' stuff). If that helps shower, fine. But the issue is same in kitchen...have never seen a metal one just the cheap plastic, but they work great IMO. You can put in regular house hold fixtures, instead of the cheap "O" ring held together fixtures, But I still never seen a metal oxygenic shower head yet...

Well, that's a shame........but if that device will increase water flow, and if water flow (pressure) is required to get me hot water, I'll get one.

Lots to choose from. Not sure of model to get........but will get one and try that. I'm pretty desperate on this hot water issue.
