DSI propane Atwood Pt 2

hello again. So my wife figured a bath/shower schedule for us: 8 am..8 pm and 8 am next day for three of us cause the 6 gallon tank does not provide enough hot water for for more than one person at a time right? what is y'alls experience?

You don't have to wait 12 hours for the next shower, maybe 1 hr.

With a 6 gal WH you won't be able to just stand in there like at home and take your time. No reason you can't do BTB showers on propane. My wife and I take BTB showers with our 6 gal HWH all the time using just the propane. You need to take Navy showers and wait 20 minutes after the 1st one is done. Which is usually how long my wife needs after she gets out. Then it's my turn. After I'm out, wait 20 mins and it should be ready for the next.

We have both electric and propane already built in but only use propane as its fast enough recovery time. Like Cumminsfan said, just keep it on and wait 20-30 mins. It will be ready. You shouldn't have to wait 12hrs or is that just logistics and water stretching?
