Glad you are happy with yours. But, the tankless water heater will not work for us. I started this thread hoping someone might have some insight if Jayco would offer the standard water heater in upcoming Precepts. Right now it is a "mandatory" option.

Shirley, we just purchased our unit in June and had the same problem. We took it back and after much discussion with Girard and testing they finally determined we had a bad board so once dealer received parts from Girard and installed we've had no trouble. We were also told that our dealer had five other customers come in after us with same complaint so they were just able to order pasts for them and get them back to "Happy Camper" status.

They put the standard gas/electric heater in the same spot where the other one was. They somehow made it fit.

I went from a traditional 6 gallon gas hot water heater in my C class to the tankless in my Precept. After learning the hot water only trick, I haven't had any problems getting the temperature right and still taking my Navy showers, especially since almost all of my camping is boondocking. During the summer, I have adjusted the water temp to about 1/8 above the lowest setting, where as during some freezing February weather, I had to adjust it much higher. My 13 year daughter had no trouble getting the hang of it, too.
And don't forget, winterizing is much easier with the tankless. It was a real pain winterizing with the 6 gallon Suburban.

I just saw a 2016 Precept MSRP sheet and the tankless water heater is still part of the "Customer Value Package". I was really hoping Jayco would give you the option to get the 6 gallon gas dsi/electric tank water option.

I have been very pleased with our tankless water heater - after - I learned how to use it.

We set the temp of the water heater hotter or cooler depending on the outside temperature, then full turn on the hot water in the shower and if the cold faucet is on at all, use it sparingly. The hot water must be flowing full or it will overheat in the heater and cycle on and off.

Also we had it not heat at all a couple times and discovered the heater vent had shifted and was slightly blocked and the heater needed to be reset. There is a small unmarked button on the heater that needed to be pushed to reset.

Agree! It's a bit of an art but once yoi get the hang of it endless hot water is awesome. Also make sure no one else uses any water while someone is showering.

Very True... We just returned from a week long trip and had plenty of time to figure it out. With cool water supply, just less than half way on the dial worked for us. Water supply temperature is a big factor in getting it right.
