water heater

Have a 32.5 Windsong which we love except the small water heater. Anyone know how to increase the size?

If you have a 6 gallons I presume you could cut the opening a bit bigger and install a 10 gallons water heater and on the 10 gallon you get the dual ( propane and electric ) When you leave the water heater on both at the same time the water stay hot much longer. If you already have a 10 gallon please disregard this tread.

If you have a suburban 6 gallon water heater you already have both options (propane and AC electric). You can use BOTH at the same time for faster temp recovery if you use a lot of hot water.
The black rocker switch outside is what turns the 120 VAC on or off and the hot water heater switch inside (with red "on "light) is JUST for propane operation.

Learn to take "navy" showers. You get wet, turn the water off, soap, the turn the water on and rinse, then you are done. About 4 gallons total. I know, hard for the wife to do, but if you ever camp where there is no water, and your fresh water tank is 40 gallons or less, then you need to learn this routine, else you will run out of water and your gray tank will be full.

I forgot to mention that there is a water heater made by GIRARD PRODUCT and it is a tankless water heater. It is supposed to give constant hot water. Also there is a water heater made by PRECISION TEMP that is also a tankless water heater. Both of these water heater are a straight fit to the existing fit for the normal 6 gallons models. Also there is the 10 gallons ATWOOD XT with a new technology that is supposed to give you the amount of a 16 gallons water heater. Is anybody have tried these tanlkess 2 water heaters mentionned in the biginning?
