Tankless water heater

Hello y'all!

Long time reader, first time poster. I have been living full-time in my 2003 16' Scamp for over 2 years. I tow with a Tesla Model 3. I have been able to visit 48 US states in the past 2 years! My hot water heater went out and I want to replace it with a tankless heater. I am overwhelmed with all of the available replacements options. Has anyone replaced their tank with tankless? What tips/tricks should I know? Any brand recommendations? Thanks in advance!

Presume

Just as a question. Would it be an electric Instant like for under a sink/ Point of use ???  Any propane would require ducting.  I believe some are using such but any of the higher volume output are almost always powered from a 220 Volt source and not usually available

2019 Scamp 13 standard

I want a tankless water

I want a tankless water heater that runs off both electric and propane. Would love to find one that I can just place in the old water heater hole. It will be used for kitchen faucet and bathroom faucet; for all daily living hot water needs. Kind of like this:

Tankless Water Heater

The Precision looks like a good choice. Mostly it looks to be installed on larger trailers, but seems to replace the 6 gallon which is fairly standard. I'd get the spec sheet on this one and the one currently used in your 16 and compare the dimensions to see how much customization would be required. It might be a simple weekend job or quite a bit more involved once you compare to the existing.

There is an install video on the Precision link that I added to your post that's pretty good.

I know some have installed tankless, so hopefully we'll hear from someone that has one completed.
