Waited about an hour for the tank to recover, and I took a 10 minute shower. Still had hot water. One thing I noticed was that my hot water is HOT and it doesn't take much hot water for a comfortable shower. Maybe that's the key; hotter water = less usage?
We have yet to run out of hot water while showering and most of the time we leave the water running. We take approx 10 minute showers and allow about 30 minutes between. We always use the electric side and rarely use the gas. This is our third trailer and it's been that way on all three. Maybe we take "cooler" showers than most requiring less hot water per shower.
Our biggest concern is filling up the grey tank when not at a FHU site!
