Part of the advice was good to read about tankless in this Forum by searching. IMHO unless one has a Park Model tankless is NOT the way to go....but I'm not an expert nor do I have one.

Let's see what happens.. Not all advertisements get deleted. Same as sales ads, many do, some don't..

I guess it is how the moderator interprets the post?
To me, this one is an advertisement.

I dont know what brand the OP was hawking but I was looking at the new Atwood unit and it looks promising. I think it's the only one that has a variable heater (16 to 50K BTU). It also has the biggest heater (according to Atwood).
Anyone looking at demand heaters should check it out.

Go to the Jayco Owners forum and you'll find scores of posts on Tankless. Most of them relevant to the Girards as that's what Jayco picked.

I'd venture a guess it's 80/20 or 70/30 against Girard tankless.

We replaced the Girard tankless in our Greyhawk with a Suburban 6-gallon model. Jayco covered the swap as a warranty item for which we are very appreciative.

To heck with that advertiser. Good job, moderator. I'm watching all the movies and shows on PVR only, skipping commercials, don't need this noise here either.

Please somebody explain - in a few words - what are the benefits of tankless compared to 4-6 gal heater in moderate to warm climate (always above freezing). Less water, less propane, longer/cheaper lifespan?

None of those (well, I don't know about lifespan, but traditional water heaters have a long life if taken care of anyway). The main advantage is being able to take a long shower without running out of hot water, which really is only applicable if you're someplace with full hookups since otherwise you're just limited by the tank sizes. A second advantage I guess is not having to wait for it to warm up after it's been off before using hot water.

Proponents will claim that it uses less propane because it's not keeping some water hot all the time. In theory that could be true, but in practice any differences are negligible at best and, at least in sticks and bricks houses, offset by a tendency to use more hot water.

Without fail, the loudest voices on these tankless threads are most always those who do not have one! Speculation and fear of the unknown.

Our Precisiontemp unit works great and uses much less propane than the old tank style units on previous RV's. Facts don't lie.
