Has anyone tried a tankless hot water heater ?

I found an inexpensive one at this link:

RV Camper LP Propane Tan...

However i'm not sure if this is do-able. I am sick of taking 2 minute showers and was thinking of other options.
Thanks

Hi, I recently ordered a new V-lite 30WFKSS and I am having the Girard tankless water heater installed. This unit drops right in for the Suburban 6gal unit and I understand they will soon have an adapter for the Atwood.

Here is the link to thier site Girard Products, LLC | Green RV Company | Green RV Companies | Sustainable RV Company | Girard Products, LLC | Girard Green RV Products | Eco Friendly RV Companies | Best Green RV Companies | RV Companies The Leader in Green Technology for RV

Thanks

Bryan

Liking that here, too. I just contacted them through the website to see if that will work in a Sandpiper.

Will do. I talked with the folks at Girard and they told me that it was designed to be a direct drop in for the Suburban. I installed a Noritz 6.9gpm tankless water heater in my house back in 2006 and it has been working perfect no issues and hot water forever. I think it may start coming standard in RV's at some point. It all works off water flow. When you turn on the hot water it ignites and heats water when you turn it off it shuts down. Will save lots of propane. I will keep everyone here informed on how it goes with mine. That is when I get it, trailer on order should take delivery last week in December... can't wait.

They run around $695 depending on where you purchase from.

Here is a link to a dealer for them.
