Cool Hot Water Tank in Jay Feathers

Greeting Jayco Owners,

A quick question regarding getting hot water out of the interior faucets. Assuming the fresh water tank is full of water and the HWT is full of water, how long should it take to get hot water out of my faucets? I know that using the electric switch will take substantially longer to heat the water than using the LP gas switch, so what is an estimation of time that I can expect before water is hot enough to use the shower? I have 1 more trip planned this season, and the CG we are going to will have all of its bathroom/shower facilities closed for the season, so we will be using the RV bathroom for the first time.

I dont know an exact time. Also keep in mind you can run both ( electric and propane )at the same time to get the water heated up quicker. If you do this you can go to the side of camper that has the water heater and listen or visually check to see if the gas is shut off yet. If it is off it has heated it up to temp.
