On-Demand hot water

Our 2016 CC came with the on demand hot water, we have not used the coach yet. I was just wondering if anyone has the current set up in the CC, and what your thoughts on it are. Thanks

Have a on demand in the house and love it as long as you have gas you will have hot water. Am looking at putting one in my 2016 31rk.

I don't like the on demand hot water heater, for my home yes but RV no. There is just two of us and we never run out of hot water now, why would we want to pay for hot water when pay to camp. Besides in your house the water pressure stays constant not so in a RV. But it's cheaper to put a on demand hot water heater in a RV than a electric/LP hot water heater. As long as Cedar Creek has electric/LP as a option when I get ready to trade I'll stick with Cedar Creek if not I'll look elsewhere. I can see it with a big family just not for me.

I agree I have it in our house but not sure if I would want it in our trailer.

Another "upgrade" that was not well thought out. I don't deny on demand works well. As stated above ... why have a hot water heater that runs soely on gas for an RV? When I pay for a campsite, I'd prefer not to use my propane when I'm already paying for electricty via the campsite fees.

Wildcat started putting on demand hot water heaters in and it just didn't work out. The brand they put in was not the best, started with a G. But I'm not real bright on some things but I think it came down to water pressure. Some people could make it work but most could not. Wildcat does not offer it anymore. But for us with just the two of us we don't need it. Besides every year campground fees go up, I like to use campground electric instead of my propane. But I can see it if you use a lot of hot water. If you do use a lot of hot water you can still heat your water up faster with propane and keep it hot with propane.

One of the reasons campground fees go up every year is because people are using more and more electricity every year. Don't complain about fees going up while, at the same time, advocating for one of the biggest reasons they do.

Electricity does not go up that much.

I didn't mean to get off topic. If you have a need for a lot of hot water then by all means a demand hot water heater is the way to go. If my electric hot water heater at home quits a demand propane hot water heater will be installed. It works great in a house. There is a forum just for Wildcat and on there a few people could get them to work but most could not. Most people that could not make them work had to install a LP/electric heater. Then there was not enough room and they had to install a small heater, I think Forest River got tired of all the complaints and agreed to replace them. Some people bragged about the on demand hot water heaters but most did not. I ordered my Wildcat(Polecat) during that time and they installed the LP/electric heater in mine. Cedar Creek is actually doing it to save money, if both cost the same to install I guarantee that the on demand hot water heaters might be a option if that. Money and space, the on demand heaters take up less space. I think a lot of people will look at the price of the option now of the LP/electric about $2,000. When I order me a new Cedar Creek I think I'll go back to the RV refrigerator. I think that was about money too

I have the on demand hot H20 heater in my 2016 36ckts. I like the fact I don't run out of hot water, I like long showers.
