Hi, I have a 76 Trillium 1300 and I would like to add hot water for the sink. I thought of installing a little propane or electric water tank somewhere in the trailer. Any cues or ideas how to do this?

-Thanks!

Andrew.

Hi: How about a tall slim garage sale coffee urn... take out the percolator basket/stem and plug it in and turn the spigot out over the sink???

-I never thought of that one Alf, but I'm looking for a more permanent option like Atwood or suburban water heater. Anyone knows the thankless water system ?

There isn't much empty space inside the counter unless you give up something else, if that's the location you had in mind. Looks like you would probably need at least 1 cubic foot for the smallest units. I'm curious to see other answers, though. My fridge happens to be pulled out, so here's a pic of the small nook inside my counter between the fridge and the furnace.

-My Trillium doesn't have a propane furnace -we use a small portable electric heater- I was planning installing the water tank at that place, beside the fridge under the sink. Depending on the unit size, it might fit.

After reading post from members concerning tank less water system, I think this would be a interesting solution for my needs. Did any of you have a propane unit in a trillium or similar trailer? How much could cost the unit and how difficult is it to install one? Any suggestions on brand? -Thanks!
