Hubs did some research on this and Truma ARE pricey and only installable by them/technician. We have decided and ordered an propane/electric standard rv hot water heater....maybe atwood. The one in our old Jayco worked well for us. Hubs will install it when it arrives and THEN we will try the new shower out.
Thank you for all your input...confirming they don't belong in most rv's. It should be an option if someone really wants one not standard.

One of the main advantages of a tankless heater is that there is an unlimited supply of hot water.
However in an RV you often do not have unlimited resources.
Often you are limited by your fresh and waste water capacities.
The basic concept of a tankless water heater is flawed when it comes to RV use.
Do you install a RV tankless for the energy savings and efficiency?
Simply put there just isn't that much savings to be gained vs. the versatility you give up by going to a tankless heater.

We removed our tankless water heater from our Thor Sprinter. It did not work for us. It was difficult for us to get the setting right, they never were, then if the water was shut off then it was the process of waiting for hot water. We never had endless hot water.

We like the tank system. Out new class A has a tank system. For us the tank system works well.
