Supplemental Water Heating
I posted this on the RV Systems and Appliances forum but since there were no responses I thought I would try it here.
Anyone see a reason why I couldn't/shouldn't install something like this ([url=http://chronomiteproducts.com/chronomite-m-20l-120-volt/]Chronomite M-20L (120 Volt) - Chronomite Products - BuyAndLarge Inc) in my coach to supplement the hot water supply for the shower? This unit requires a 20 amp outlet, which I would need to confirm I have available. My water heater is a Suburban 6 gallon LPG/AC unit. The AC side is not working but I haven't yet figured out why not. I've replaced the electric heating element but there is no AC power to the connection. The 6 gallons is just adequate for me to shower, but not nearly so for my wife or three daughters.
I guess my question is whether the recovery capacity would improve much if the AC heating element were working in addition to the LPG, or could I add something like the product I referenced above? I don't know why the OEM used such a small water heater while the holding tanks are substantial; 130 gallon fresh, 64 gallon grey, 64 gallons black. TYIA
