Tankless Water Heater
I was one of those who had numerous issues with the newest generation of Girard water heaters in a 2013 Melbourne. First unit was faulty and needed to be replaced. Replacement "worked" for TWO days before encountering another fault. My attempts to communicate with Jayco Service about my issues essentially fell upon deaf ears. It is an expensive solution... but replacing the Girard product with a traditional Atwood (or Suburban) water heater was the only thing I could find acceptable. Dealing with the Girard product was making my camping experiences miserable. Just came back from a weekend trip down in Destin area (Topsail), and Atwood unit worked perfectly. It's nice not to have to worry about taking an unstable, excessively hot or cold shower, and filling my gray tank in the process. Not sure why Jayco treats this product as an upsell. If you think about it, the only reason is because it is cheaper that traditional units. I did not have a pleasant experience with Girard, but what surprised me most was that Jayco Service really doesn't care what their end users think. Something has changed at Jayco in the last decade. They didn't used to be this way.
