Details: Did you know that you don't have to give up relaxing, hot showers while living in your RV, trailer, tiny house, or other small dwelling?
The RV-550 simultaneously conserves both water and energy, and at 32 pounds, it weighs half to one third as much as a full 6-10 gallon water heater!
The heater only operates when a hot water tap is turned on. Without a tank of water to always keep hot, you'll use up to 50% less propane. A 20 pound tank of propane will provide approximately 940 gallons of hot water.
The RV-550 also has true automatic gas modulation, which means that it self-adjusts the gas usage based on variations in water flow and incoming water temperatures. This allows consistent temperature control without overheating the water in the summer or not heating it enough during colder weather.
It uses less than 1.5 amps of power in normal operation, and about 3 amps when the cold weather protection is activated.
It's the only tankless water heater with built-in freeze protection for four-season use. In order for it to function, your 12 volt and gas supply must remain on. This allows the burner to fire and electric elements to protect the system when it senses freezing temperatures. Other brands of tankless heaters waste propane or water by preheating the water tank, or dumping fresh water on the ground to prevent freezing. The RV-550 can also be easily winterized for seasonal use.
The RV-550 boasts the highest hot water output in the industry at 55,000 BTU's. That's over 50% more power than most tankless water heaters on the market! More power means your water temperature remains constant, regardless of the flow rate or incoming water temperature (at a minimum of 0.5 GPM, optimal operation 1.0 GPM).
Each RV-550 tankless water heater is designed, assembled and tested by hand in the USA.
