Hi Everyone,
Got a question, I want to add a hot water on demand ( this is the 1/3 gal for hot tea etc) to my 5th wheel at the sink. Can I tap into a breaker and add aplug there? or what would you suggest?. This will run all the time when plugged in. ( May use the same breaker as the microwave since it dosn't get used very much?)

Karl

If you are going to mount a faucet on sink with tank under sink maybe better to use a outlet on counter wall. The heat element may draw to much amps and will interfer with the micro when you want to use it. Could trip the braker.
Plus you could tap into water line for tank.
You may also find a 12 volt water heater like found for pluging into 12 volt acc outlet.

Karl, I'd be tempted to do something like 007 says, but perhaps install a new outlet under the sink that your instant water heater could plug into. Check your breaker box and circuits; -hopefully they're 20 amp, not 15A. And like 007 said, use one or tap off one that is not used much. You can look around Lowe's or Home Depot; -they make outlets with their own fuses right at the workbox (this might keep you from having to go to the breaker box when you need to reset it).

Good Idea, also what if I add a switch under the sink to turn off the water heater if I were to use the Micowave. That way there would not be any additional drian on the circuit, then it would allow me to turn the water heater back on for regular use.
