Buying a 2012 Greyhawk FK

Hi All,

Been lurking here for a couple of months and have put down a deposit on a FK.

One question I have is whether to go with the Tankless Water heater. I was wondering if anyone had any on hands experience with them??

Thank you.

It seems like it would be a good idea. Endless hot water when you need it.

We used to have one of those instant hot taps at the old house and it was very quick to heat the water when we needed.

Congrats on the soon be yours new trailer.

Reitof,

Welcome to the Jayco forums

I'm not familiar with the tank-less HWH, but here are a couple of threads on it:

Thank you.
I have a Coleman Hot Water on Demand portable hot water heater and we love it...used it endlessly even when we did our huge family camping trip last summer. It will save you on the propane and only heats when you need it. We have new TT that we bought Feb 25, this year and it has the 6 gallon hot water tank. Chances are we will still continue to use the Coleman for most of the day to day stuff and reserve the hot water in the trailer for washing up since we boondock most of the time

No experience with a tankless system on our motorhome, but we do have the tankless system at our permanent home and we have 10+ years of satisfaction. Congratulations on your pending purchase and welcome to the JOF!

Thanks everyone for their input and links. I did a lot of reading and decided to not go the tankless route. The main issue seemed to be temp of the incoming water and adjusting the furnace to compensate.

For 1st time rvers it seemed a little too much.

Welcome to the Jayco World. We have had several water heaters both in boats and our 2010 31SS. We rarely have a supply problem - they are fine!!
