Smile need to replace H/W on a 1979 Terry 32ft

Thinking of going pure electric, on-demand system.
And want to avoid the RV specific H/W tanks.

Welcome your tips, tricks & insight.

Cheers! Dave & Laura

I'm guessing that your TT has a 30 amp supply.

Your air conditioner uses 15 amps, your new W/H will use at least 10 amps.

That leaves you at best, 5 amps for all other uses.

Propane uses almost no electric.

Good luck which ever way you go.

Why all electric, and why not RV specific?

RV parts are doubly expensive ~ ie) an RV fridge is $1200. & up!
Our replacement fridge is from Home Depot, 10.7 cu ft 24.02" wide, fully electric & fit perfectly - works like a charm!

Our trailer is not towable & on a dedicated site & hasn't moved since parked in the early 80's.
We will not be using the A/C.
