Re: Is the Truma AquaGo an instant hot water heater that will actually work?

Ok, I can now give a complete update on the Truma.
It works wonderfully. There are no temperature fluctuations once you set it to the temperature you want. You can reduce the flow amount of hot water and cold water if you are boondocking and not worry about having enough water flow to continue to get hot water as with other on demand hot water heaters. I begin to get hot water about 10 second after I turn it on from a cold start. (How long does it take for a standard hot water heater to heat up the water to be usable?) You will use that same amount of water with a standard hot water heater to flush out the cooler water in your lines so no difference there.
The limits to it are obvious. It only runs on propane so no hot water when you run out of it. If you are not at a full hookup, then you are also limited by your holding tank and the amount of fresh water you have. You will be tempted to take longer showers but that is not so bad as you can control that ... maybe (lol)
So, at this point, there is one on demand hot water heater that actually works well.
