  • On demand hot water for mobiles?

    Anyone invent one of these yet?

    If you mean "tankless", it's not viable as they use a tremendous amount of power (amps) that would overrun a generator power output. 2 of my vans have a small 4 gallon electric "on demand" water heaters that use 1500 watts. They can heat 4 gallons in about 10 minutes. The generator can handle that plus a dryer at the same time.

      Tom is right tankless electrics are all 220 High amp units- you'd also go through gallons before the thing came up to temp.

      Its also not viable to use gas to heat the water as a gas version requires a 2" inlet pipe. You'd blow through your onboard supply in minutes.
