RV Tankless Water Heater 12 V On Demand Hot Water Heater 55,000 BTU
Having hot water in your rig is a luxury that a lot of us take for granted. When out hot water heater breaks, though, we are reminded of how nice that hot water really is. If you’re on the lookout for a hot water heater to replace your old model or are simply wanting to update your system, then this tankless hot water heater is perfect. It doesn't have a tank, so you don't have to wait for it to heat up. Instead, it heats up the water as it passes through it. With no long wait time and no limit to the amount of water that gets heated, you can enjoy your hot water the way you want.
The microcomputer in the control device controls the water, electricity, and gas of the water. It keeps the temperature of the water to the best level to increase consumer comfort. It displays the current temperature as well as the temperature you set it to, with options for both Celsius and Fahrenheit. There are visuals for the fault code, flame, shower, blower, and power indicator as well. There are buttons for the power switch, Celsius to Fahrenheit switch, increase heat, and decrease heat. With this controller, keeping your water at the most comfortable level has never been easier. Make sure you put the control pad in an easy to access place so that you won't have to go looking for it.
Safety Measures and Extra Features
There are several features built into this amazing machine.
- First, there is a forced exhaust structure that keeps the air safe and clean while and after entering the combustion chamber. There is also a dust net to make sure no dirt gets into the tankless water heater.
- Second, there is a low water pressure startup, which helps to protect the heater and make it easier to use.
- Third, there is flameout protection. What this means is that if the water heater flames out on accident while being used, it automatically turns off, making sure safety is protected and no gas leaks out.
- Fourth, there is a speed changing and wind resistance function, which increases the speed of the fan to eliminate any harmful gasses if there is a blockage in the flue or if the smoke is blocked. If the fan increases a maximum speed, the computer will shut off the gas and the flame to make sure safety is kept.
- Fifth, there is water and gas linkage control. If there is no water flowing or the water outlet valve is closed, the water heater will automatically stop to prevent damage.
- Sixth, the RV water heater has a frost protection function. Basically, if the water in the pipe gets at or below 43°F, the display will show a code and the heater will start up to run with a certain load to warm it up. The heater will turn off once the water reaches 90°F but it's best to wait about 3 minutes before testing it. Please note, this function will only work when hooked up to both propane and 12V power.
- Finally, there is a fault auto-diagnosis and fault code display function. With this function, the computer monitors different components and safety devices to make sure everything is working properly. If something is off, a code will flash on the screen to let you know what it is. The code will be a letter and a number and to know what's wrong, look to the manual for the code key. With this handy safety function, the heater is easy to keep in check and maintain.
With all appliances, there are safety measures to consider. First, it is always best to consult a professional when installing a water heater. This helps to minimize risks as well as making sure it's installed properly. Also, make sure you have a pressure relief valve installed before the water inlet to prevent damage caused by excess pressure. Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable materials near the water heater and make sure it's drained of all water for the winter.
If not waiting to take a hot shower sounds good to you, then this tankless water heater is perfect. It's easy to use, durable, and great for any RV. Have any questions? Contact us online or call our friendly Customer Care team today!

If the temperature of the water flowing into the water heater is less than 43°F or higher than 90°, the water heater will not heat the water. If the water in the pipes is colder than 43°, it is recommended to use tank and tubing heater pads to heat the water before it reaches the water heater.
At higher altitudes, this unit will have two problems: the thermal efficiency will decrease and the power will be lost, and the insufficient combustion will lead to worse combustion conditions, substandard combustion emissions, or abnormal ignition. Above 4,000 ft elevation, this unit will lose 4% of its BTU for every 1,000 ft above this height.
The temperature of your water will come out cooler than the set temperature on the water heater due to heat dissipating as it travels through your water lines.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: The water isn't getting hot. What should I do?
A: It's possible that the water flow is too large, the temperature regulation is not appropriate, or the inlet temperature of the external environment is too low.
Q: What's the minimum amount of water pressure to run the unit?
A: The unit can be started with under 0.1MPa water pressure or 0.66 gal/min water flow.
Q: What's the maximum amount of hot water per minute?
A: It depends on the temperature of the water at the inlet. Warmer water will flow through the system a bit faster than cold water. Please refer to the chart:
|Inlet water temperature (°F)||
(Gallons per Minute)
