opinions on water heater Excel Ventless Tankless

Has anyone installed and used the ventless and tankless water heater seen here

TANKLESS GAS WATER HEATER "Low Water Pressure" Startup Technology


What has your experience been with that unit? Is it worth it? Any problems?

I was looking at ecotemp models but don't want to mess with the venting. 1.6GPM seems to be the only draw back that means low flow everything.

I have never used one of these, but have been looking. Usually vent free means moisture inside the bus from combustion of the propane. Other than that.. I would have a CO detector for my peace of mind.

I'm going the European route - a separate 5 and 30 litre boiler setup. Of course, I'm stationary, so I don't have to worry about using LP to heat my water.

i bought one second hand of craigslist for 100$ it lasted a few months i mounted it on the exterior of the bus for easy venting the problem i had is it stopped working and repairs are very expensive you need to filter the water very good before entering the heater or it will become faulty what i am doing now is i gutted the water heater took the copper core set it over the fire pit and piped it in works great
