I always use both. Once I open the propane valve I flip the water heater switch and the gas water heater fires up. This brings the water temp up in just a few minutes. While the gas burner is running, I flip the electric heater switch located on the water heater unit. The electric heater is really designed to maintain the proper temp. Once the proper temp is reached, the gas burner shuts down automatically, but the pilot stays lit. The electric heater can maintain the proper temp during light use. However, should hot water demand become more than light, the gas burner automatically kicks in again to heat the tank rapidly. Bottom line: I use both at all times and have hot water within 10 minutes of setup and never run out regardless of demand......for two adults, that is!

The last time I was at my buddies place in Keswick a few years back I had a panic attack at fuel prices. The truck was bad enough but the Harley with high test was just crazy.

In Korea it's about $8 a gallon for gas, $6 for diesel so don't feel too bad. At least you have CGs like the ones above!

I believe that this is the intended usage of the two modes of operation. However, I opted to bypass usage of the gas mode since we don't need hot water until the dishes need to be done at least 2 hours after setup. The electric element heats up the water well within that time. The other test is back to back showers even after doing breakfast dishes - again no problem with the electric heater keeping up with the demand, so I never found the need to use the propane.

I have yet to use propane to run the water heater. Probably should before the warrantee runs. It just the DW and I so I just turn on the electric heat. I have yet to need hot water before it heats up so I couldn't say how long it took.
