2016 Wildwood 27RKSS - Water Heater

I recently purchased this unit from a friend to use for work. I am a do it yourselfer and have made a few small repairs to the unit and to prevent any future problems.

One thing I have been researching and wanting to tackle is adding a tank less hot water heater. I have done some searches and read everything that I have found but I am curious as to if anyone with this model has swapped or upgraded their hot water heater? Any do's or don'ts's along with suggestions are welcome.

Thanks in advance.

We have a 2018 27RKSS,
Would a tankless water heater allow longer showers? (Assuming full hook up).

Theoretically with a tankless water heater you would have unlimited hot water, so yes, you could have longer showers.

welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. I thought that for my rig but there is not enough room to properly position a tankless.

Another consideration, breakers. I'm not sure the current panel would be able to handle it? We have tripped breakers by having the A/C, a floor blower fan and a few lights on.

I would agree with JR: too many amps for the marginal wiring in these units.

Tankless water heaters use propane to heat the water
