Water Heater: Tankless or Gas / Electric

What water heater do you want in your current or next RV? Tankless (gas only) or 12 gallon gas and electric.

More Montana owners are talking about tankless water heaters. Some owners have installed them in place of the traditional gas and electric water heater.

Please vote. Comments will help, but always vote.

Your input it valuable.

We love our tankless water heater. We never boondock - always in a park.
Its nice to be able to take a long hot shower, or SW fills the full size tub for a long soak. I started RVing with my Mom and Dad in 1967 - so after 50 years of Navy showers - the IW-60 changes our camping experience. No more Navy showers.

My unit did not move for 2 years thru covid (late Dec 2019 - Oct 2021).
During that time something happened to the Suburban water heater. Did not discover it until a couple of weeks before we were leaving for a long trip, and we had no hot water. I searched the internet a bit, could not find much info - so we decided to pull the trigger are order a new IW-60. The install for the new one was very simple. I put the old one in a box in the garage. I later found info showing to check a certain spot for spider webs. I would have been a simple fix. Well now we have a spare.

Sam - one thing you should consider adding to the system is easily accessed points to hookup and flush and descale the unit. I need to add this plumbing to my system. I still need to work out the location of the cut-off valves and connections, but I plan to poke connections thru the storage compartment bulkhead...then for my annual maintenance - I can just hook up some hoses, use a bucket of vinegar and a Harbor Freight cheap pump and run the descale cycle for a bit. I want to make it as easy as possible to access and run...we'll see.
