Casita Hot Water Heater

I recently acquired a 1989 16' Casita. The original propane water heater had failed at some time in the past so the previous owner plumbed in a 110 electric in the fron closte. They used improved camsites and RV sites excluseively. I rarely do. I am planning on reversing the process and going back to proane. Either Suburban or Atwood 6 Gal. I am guessing? Are there better options? Also has anyone tried any of the 5L size tankless heaters? Any other suggestions?

Thanks

My only suggestion is to get a combination propane/electric water heater.
That way if you happen to have electric you can save your propane.

My trailer is not home right now so can not tell you what kind I have.

I suggest calling Casita directly! I have searched and shopped around for parts and it seems everytime I do, they have it for the same price (if not cheaper) and they ship it to your door.........


When I had to replace mine, after calling every rv supply within a 2 hour drive, I called Casita and they had it cheaper and to me within a week.
