I just ordered one anyway. How did you vent yours? Everywhere I read says it's meant for outdoor use. I am sure I can install some ducting, was just curious how you did yours.

I dealt with 20 & 5 litre boilers in Germany. They don't heat up until you turn them on. So you had to wait a bit. Big deal. Likewise demand heaters. While I love the idea of instant hot water, I don't like the idea of keeping beaucoup gallons lying about doing nothing.

Demand heater for me as well.

Yeah, I like that idea too. But I've got two big propane water heaters. It is a large volume of water but the exhaust can be vented into the bus to provide a source of heat. Most of us use the bejebees out of these catalytic propane heaters that vent into the room anyway. Maybe I should just take apart the water heater and use the burner to heat the bus without 40 gallons of hot water sitting there.

And...tankless use a fraction of the LP that a "standard" tank type uses.

I M O with on demand if you have to mix cold with your hot water your heating it to much. its not like you have a tank of hot water to run out, you have endless hot water. put it in an area you can easy get to. doing dishes? just turn it up a little more.im single and i can go over 3 months on a grill tank of gas. these little units are amazing.

So you don't have any exhaust issues with it being inside? I'm not the most knowledgeable when it comes to cng or lpg.

There are two categories of tankless. Basically built for either indoors or out. You can modify an outdoor unit by building in an exhaust system for it but need to know what you are doing. That is what Jack ("Ol' Trunt") did on his '35 Chevy. CO2 poisoning.

Unless done properly, you risk CO2 poisoning.
