i use the l-5 in my home mounted in my bathroom, it just vents in the room. over two years now without any problems. the btu rating is the same as a large burner on a stove, no problems. remember the larger the unit the more water you have to run thru it. im going with the same size unit in my bus, plenty of water for what were doing.

EcoSmart Electric Tankless Water Heater

Has anyone used the EcoSmart water heater? I saw the EcoTemp, and filed it away, but the EcoSmart one caught my interest. I'm considering the Eco 11 as the smallest I can get and still have a hot shower. I'll be alone but for my cat and snake so I don't see the need to run multiple water faucets. Max Amperage is 57, Voltage 240, Kw 13.

The questions and answers and reviews are mixed and confusing.

Otherwise, I'm considering the Ecotemp. I found this one:
https://www.amazon.com/Eccotemp-I12-...s+water+heater

And this one:
https://www.amazon.com/Eccotemp-L10-...words=eccotemp

I'm working on figuring out exactly what products I want and need to get for my Skoolie right now, working on the budget. Plumbing budget is mostly done, just need to sort out my water heater. But that will affect my solar electric budget too so working on that next.

I don't know nothing about these hot water heaters, but I'd suggest you don't buy to many parts and pieces before you're ready to install them. Most of us have a tendency to change our minds about our choices.

Luckily I have ZERO monies right now, I'm working on selling a classic car sos I can buy and convert my Skoolie. So that's not a problem right now!! And trust me, when it comes to stuff like this, I check double check triple check before I buy. Hence my field questions lol

I'm good at buying parts and pieces months before I can use them, often wishing I'd made a different choice based on newly learned information about certain items.

I've been considering an instant hot water heater. For ease of operation I plan on going with a generator to support electrical appliances, including the water heater. No battery bank or solar. Still going with the single fuel source for the vehicle and geny. It's not a perfect theory yet.

Installing a Dometic propane water heater

Does anyone have any tips on installing a Dometic propane water heater? We bought a used one that we found on Craigslist. Presently, we do not have a water heater in our bus. We are limited on where we can install it, any advice on that? We would appreciate any feedback . Thank you!

Did you try Dometic at https://www.dometic.com ? They have a support section on their website https://www.dometic.com/en-us/us/support .

Maybe in a cabinet under the sink? Between the sink and the shower? I think some people have put them under the bus in a box.
