Nick, wonder if it will work at higher altitudes and low water pressure? Those were the 2 problems that I had. Looked for more info from Girard but nothing yet on their web site.

Walt..I'm not sure only time will tell. I receive this update from Jayco, regarding some questions I had on Seneca.

Best Regards,

Nick

I wouldn't mind trying this on my OFF-ROAD POPUP camper. All would have to work from the LP GAS and 12VDC battery for the water pressure pump.

Then I could rig up my 6-gal water heater for my hydronic type furnace routing hot water using a small thermostat controlled 12VDC water pump to two floor mounted AQUA HOT 100 heat exchangers.

Sure would be alot quieter than those loud Furnace Blowers we all have... Mine sounds like sitting in the rear seats of a MD-80 airplane.... GGGRRRRRRRR sound all night long.

Manufacturers like Jayco need stop stop cheaping out and putting the Girards in their products. The Girards have been out for several years and they still haven't got it right. The Precision Temp RV-500s cost more but they actually work and do so intuitively.

I still have a problem understanding why I would want a tankless water heater. I like getting free hot water when hooked up to park power when I'm hosting which I do 7-8 month/year. Why should I burn my propane when I don't need to? My Suburban 10 or 12 gallon heater (I forget which) never runs out of hot water when on electric. I used to turn on both electric and propane at the same time when my exec was visiting and showering, but even with her love of hot water my Suburban keeps up fine on just electric.

Many people like tankless water heaters because they can get continuous hot water for as long as they have access to unlimited water. Of course, the downside is more propane consumption.


They aren't for all people, such as boondockers and, as edatlanta mentioned, those who have free electricity.

The Girard in my 2016 Seneca does not have a hinged door or an electronic control panel.

Straight from Jayco via email

"Nick,
There is a new version of the Girard Tankless water heater that will be coming out this fall. Once it is available we will start installing that, but I do not know timing yet."

When I asked them a week ago they responded with this.

Girard has made some improvements on there water heater to be able to get an consistent flow of hot water.
Nothing about a new version but sounds more like tweaking on the old one.
They seem to be two different answers.
