Home Forums Truck Camper Adventure Forum Tankless Hot Water Heater?? Reply To: Tankless Hot Water Heater??


Our new NorthStar has on a 4-gallon water heater which doesn’t sound like much until you use it. The old days of 120 degree T-stats are long gone and the new models have water so hot it takes only a trickle with plenty of cold added to shower and taking two showers in a row doesn’t begin to exhaust the hot water supply and in 10 minutes you have plenty of hot water. Since we are only talking a little over 30 pounds to be gained by going tankless, is the added complexity worth it? Fixing a standard water heater is a no brainer. Tankless on the other hand – hum. For me it is fixing a problem few folks are having. 🙂
