Hot water heaters

Another 'trial run' question. Our water heater seems to only work on AC or LP so while we are going down the road we only have hot/warm water until it cools off from the last time the water heater wa running. Are we missing something? Our previous coach had both sources and a combination for quick heating and warm water was always available.

Some have an Motoraid heater in the hot water heater, Do you have engine jacket water lines to the water heater?

But again, if it is a "hot" water heater, you should not need to heat the water farther.

It seems that we don't have a 'bypass' on this water heater since it has a 'Prevent-A-Freeze' system. It shouldn't be a problem since the water tends to stay hot for some time, and we don't usually travel in the cold weather. Thanks for the tips.
