RV On Demand Tankless Water Heater
To use in winter you need one with a winter package which brings the price up to $759 (not including shipping) but that sure beats the RV500's price of $1054 http://www.tanklesswaterheatersdirec...ermainpage.asp

And the new Girard is also short so you don't need the height, which is a problem for us personally. Girard company page on the water heater where you can download owner's manuals, operating instructions, etc

This post is my opinion. It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

Re: RV On Demand Tankless Water Heater ... heater.htm

Neat unit Lorna .. I don't see where it tells the temp rise that it can do .. any chance you have that info on it too?? ..

I noticed it has plenty of gpm to do the job in a RV/Camper, but the real nit-picky detail is how much rise you can get when you are pumping in 40-50 degree water (not 60-70 degree, which is ideal) .. that's the one mistake I made with my on-demand unit in my house (supply thought the attic space, great in summer/lousy in winter) ..
