Tom, could you show a picture of your tankless propane water heater? Venting and such? ...
This reminds me... I didn't show the outside view of that B1700. I have only seen the photos, but it appears that the heater has an exhaust vent through the wall in the vicinity of, or combined with, the range hood vent (between the door and the kitchen window, just below the porch light). Here's the only exterior shot I have:

The hot water, cold water, and propane lines seem to come into the bottom of the unit from the space between the range and the exterior wall.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

HI Maggie, I had looked at those (Zodi too) but did not want to go through the hassle of setting it up outside and running the water inside. Want all hot water components inside and minimal set-up time.

Hi Tom, ok great, when you have a chance! Busy getting our egg ready for our first trip in two weeks. And have many, many things to get done. Hot water will come from the gas stove on this trip.

We would use hot water for both kitchen sink and shower. We boondock in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan on the shores of Lake Gitchigumi (Lake Superior) no power, no hookups...just extreme beauty. We stay for one week and I'd be concerned about an electric hot water heater draining the battery. I have been thinking about the solar system but we also camp in areas with lots of trees. Not sure that we could gain much in solar energy.

Really interested in those little propane instantaneous water heaters. MIght put one on my list for Santa. Just concerned about the exhaust.

Though I didn't get new photos there were some I had on an old thread and have attached them here.

My water is supplied by the 15gal sprayer tank shown. It fits under a scamp bench.
It pumps water to the Aquastar LP demand heater under the sink.

The heater is exhausted out the side through a vent hole. Photo shown has that vent hole capped between uses. During use I remove the cap and slide on an elbow extension that ducts heat up and away from side of vehicle.

I did have to make a little drop box by cutting out the floor because the Aquastar was a bit too tall for the under cabinet. This was no problem because the fresh air vent is now underneath the trailer and this uses no interior oxygen to run the system.

Very cool! Thanks for the pics and set-up information Tom!

I'll have to print this off for Santa. Never too early to start that list.
