Tankless water heater Installation

Has anyone installed a tankless hot water heater in their Jayco?
If so, how difficult is it and which is a good quality brand?

Most of the reading I do on this and other forums, are of people wanting to know how to take one out.

I didn't mean to stop your discussion. They are new and there are many complaints. Look around here and read a few!

No, you're not. But I was considering buying one since the gf likes to take extremely long showers!

I had a Girard gen 2 tankless water heater on our previous diesel pusher. I absolutely hated it. I am very happy with the 10 gallon heater with gas and electric heat that can run at the same time.
Remember, tankless water heaters run only on gas. If you boondock at all they are a poor choice because you waste a lot of water waiting for it to get to initial temp. They also require constant flow to work right. This means Navy showers don't work well.
I know there are better brands which have better reviews, but it really wasn't worth the hassle.

Thank you! Ours only came with a 6gal, so I can foresee that being a problem

If you can train her how to use the camper shower, a six gallon will do the job. If not, you get a cold shower. LOL

6 gals. usually works out pretty well for us. As Norty1 suggested, she needed to be trained on TT shower etiquette. On off on off on off!
