Hot water or not.

I'm debating if I need the hot water heater hooked up. I won't be unsung it much as I can heat water for dishes ect. Showers,well if I have one at the campsite I would use facility's since it's all payed for. Any thoughts.

Your HW heater is always 'hooked up'. The question should be if and when you want to light it and shut it off. It is quick and easy to do and shut off. you will want the hot water for your dishes.

I can't figure our why anyone would not "hook up" the hot water when camping. It uses very little propane on 'gas" and it's literally free if you have the electric 120V option on your RV water heater.

The same logic applies to your water heater - just run it on the electricity that you are already paying for in your camping fees.

The language that you are using (hook up/set up) makes me wonder (no offence) if you know how easy it is to do? Do you need directions?

No. I have been a tenter most of my life. Heating water was not a problem. TT is a first for us and I'm learning. It's all a new experience. I will take advantage of what I have then.

You will love the ease (Tent camped myself for many years) of hot water.

I guess I will learn the ease of.TT LIFE. I was content tenting but I could not get the wife interested in tent camping. She's going to be in seventh heaven. Two more weeks and we are heading out to a family reunion. I will adapt. Lmao.
My son and I just stocked the trailer and we are surprised at the space we have for storage. The heavy things will go in the bed of the truck. Tools and bikes ect. tarped of course.
