Tankless RV Water Heater Blog Articles


Here is a very heated debate (sorry ‘bout that) that comes to us from the Aistream Owners Forum. It’s actually a very good discussion about the merits of a tanked water heater versus a tankless on demand water heater. Tankless water heater technology seems to be relatively successful in homes, but it seems that the challenges presented by a travel trailer or fifth wheel camper have not been fully overcome by the folks that manufacture on demand water heaters for the RV market. Problems with the temperature control unit in Girard on demand water heater have been mentioned in other threads and a contributor in this thread cites the same kind of issues in the Atwood models. As one contributor points out, the idea of being able to take a forty minute shower without running out of hot water is a splendid idea, but you have to have an endless supply of water to start with. Obviously, in an RV of any kind you will have to be hooked up to city water for this to even be a possibility. When it comes to actual energy savings, one contributor speculated that if you do like he does and turn off the tanked water heater between uses, the actual saving between the two is probably minimal. The one manufacturer of tankless, on demand water heater designed for RV use that seems to high marks from everyone is Precision Temp. One contributor to this forum has had two RVs fitted out with Precision Temp tankless water heaters and they performed flawlessly in both RVs. We sell Precision Temp tankless water heaters and we have them at the lowest price you’ll find anywhere. Just give us a call and we will help you select the Precision Temp on demand water heater best suited to meet your needs.

jcham1970 (Jeremy) recounts a terrible experience he had ordering parts from American RV Company. Unfortunately, part of that order was an Atwood tankless water heater that he purchased to install in his Scamp. The RV tankless water heater arrived damaged and it had water in it. Again unfortunately, he got a huge runaround from the folks at the American RV Company. Not one to give up so easily, Jeremy contacted Atwood directly. Atwood stood tall after talking with Jeremy and shipped out a replacement to him right away. I'd say with as many people that belong to and read the Fiberglass RV forum, this kind of publicity will hurt those that treated their customer like dirt and benefit a manufacturer who did the right thing by their customer. Let's hope Jeremy enjoys years of trouble free service from his Atwood tankless water heater.

Putting a tankless water heater in an RV is not without its challenges. An on demand water heater has to take cold water and essentially instantaneously heat it up to about 100 degrees. That requires an awful lot of energy all at once to make that happen. That energy is either going to be electricity or propane in most cases. If you have an electric tankless water heater in your RV, it will be best to use this when hooked up to the utility at the RV park. If you attempt to power the electric on demand water heater off of your batteries, you will drain you batteries very quickly. The instantaneous demand is extremely high. A long shower might be stretching it. Now if you have a very large battery bank and you have put several RV solar pales on your roof, you might just be able to store enough electricity to make this work even if you like to boondock.

It seems like a lot of people have had great experiences with on demand water heaters in them homes, but for whatever reasons, they generally don’t get the same kind of performance out of the RV tankless water heater. One of the big issues seems to be with the temperature control technology. One of the members of the Jayco Owners Forum stated that his was producing hot water that came out of the tap at 135 degrees, even at its lowest setting and could not be fixed. The best performance seems to come when the units are hooked up to city water. Even then, one reader said it worked for showers and washing hands, but the tankless heater couldn’t get the temperature up high enough for washing dishes. The temperature control issues with the Girard RV models have been so widespread that there are some lengthy forum threads on the subject. Girard may have corrected these problems by now, but you should probably do some homework prior to going tankless. It is worth noting that there are several companies that manufacture tankless water heaters for RVs, so the problems that some users on the Jayco forum experienced with the Girard models may not be common to all manufacturers. Atwood makes their own on demand RV water heaters and they would certainly be worth researching.
