Mine is dual gas/elec. I leave it on electric when available and add the gas when multiple showers are needed. Extra fast hot water that way. Obviously only gas where no electric hookup.

That is exactly how we do it, except when we are at the county fair. There are so many folks there and it is so hot all the ACs are running, you will sometimes get voltage drop. If we want to do something and not have to turn the AC off (did I mention it is hot?), I will kill the water heater for a while just to maintain proper voltage.

Hi Doug ! On our 165's the WH start-up is basically in the on position then lighting the pilot ? We've yet use ours since our first 2 trips were dry camp. June trip will be first hook-up.

We are on a seasonal site and have a metered hydro hook up that we pay at the end of the season. This will be our first seasonal experience. For now we use mainly electric hw and turn it off when not there. I'm just curious as to which would be the better money saver, propane or electric?
