110v water heater

Anyone using a 110v household water heater in their skoolie? Considering a small 3-5 gallon or maybe a point of use on demand heater. My only concern is winterizing, if I winterize the line by blowing out with compressed air will that suffice as far as the heater goes?

Re: 110v water heater

I would use Eccotemp L5 (just bought one for the food cart... $115 installed today) before i would waste my $$ on a point of use water heater. I think that it may be too small to plumb into the water system so I plan on using the EccoTemp FVI-12 unless we discover that the L5 will do the job.

Re: 110v water heater

Go to your local home improvement center and look at all the ductwork thingys. They have some for floor registers that are curved OR you can simply make a 90 degree box.
