Go Tankless or Go Home

Tankless Water Heater

Say goodbye to quick, military-style showers, refilling your tank, and waiting for the hot water to recover. This revolutionary design replaces your outdated tank heater and gives you the luxury of taking back-to-back showers, washing dishes, and running a load of laundry all at once. Unlike traditional tank heaters that require constant energy to keep your water hot, this tankless, propane-fueled water heater only uses energy when you turn on your faucet or shower, providing the ultimate efficiency at a campground or off-the-grid. The endless, on-demand hot water has no recovery time and is perfect if you're on the road full-time or traveling with a large group.


Relaxing Showers without Scalding or Freezing

Vortex Pic

Has your warm and relaxing shower ever been interrupted by a cruel burst of ice-cold water? Perhaps you've been the victim of a scorching surge of hot water that scalds you and sends you dancing out of harm's way. Either way, it's the worst, but those days are over. Furrion's vortex technology is designed to eliminate those dreaded hot and cold water fluctuations by consistently mixing hot and cold water together to reach your desired temperature, ensuring those warm, comfortable showers.


Safety First

This state-of-the-art technology is equipped with built-in safety measures to ensure you, your family, and your RV stay out of harm's way.


Its dual temperature sensors automatically shut off power if the water temperature exceeds 149 F, preventing the unit from overheating while also reducing the risk of hot water scalding. The unit also has a flame monitoring feature that cuts off the gas supply if the flame goes out to prevent gas from leaking inside your RV and a built-in safety valve that allows pressure to vent at 87 psi to prevent excess pressure and heat build-up.

This water heater was a great choice. It provides all the hot water a person wants while taking a shower or whatever you want. I removed my old 6-gallon water heater and installed this water heater myself. It only took a couple of hours to install. I purchased two flex water lines from Home Depot to hook up the water lines. I did this so I would not have to cut and reroute the existing water lines. The gas line was long enough to where I could screw it onto the water heater. I installed the thermostat on the bathroom wall. It took me about an hour to install. I placed it near the shower so it would be easy to control.
We were constantly running out of hot water with the 6-gallon tank. With this tankless heater my wife can take a "wonderful" shower and I don't get yelled at because she ran out of hot water. We used it all s
last summer almost every weekend and a several weeks.
The only problem I have had is that when we use the shower handheld shower head when taking a shower and reduce the water flow, the water heater shuts off. Then when the hot water flow is restarted, there will be a rush of cooler water. That causes a little problem. When this happens it's nice that the hot water returns within seconds.
Overall, we have had no major problems using the water heater. It works very well. I have had people tell me that this tankless water heater uses more gas than the 6-gallon water heater, but I have not seen that.
Over all it's a great product.

Heats great but use CAUTION WHEN WINTERIZING!!!!!
I
loved this upgrade when I put it in last season only to learn a very expensive lesson. This air-purge method of winterizing did NOT work with this water heater, which I have used for 20 years and 6 other travel trailers (all tank water heaters). My routine is to always gravity-drain the system and water heater first, then air-purge hot and cold lines multiple times with multiple configurations of faucets open and closed. Somehow, water was still retained in the heater and something inside froze and burst. User-error somewhere on my part, I'm sure, but again, never had an issue in decades of RV ownership. However, I do have a gripe on the manufacturing that the metal housing/enclosure was NOT sealed properly. The water leak should have all been contained inside the housing and drained to the outside of the RV but there was a considerable amount of leakage to the inside of the RV.


Comments
I reached out to the manufacturer who advised to make sure to use anti-freeze in the winterization process. This is the best way to keep the pipes from bursting.

I was totally impressed with the extremely strong shipping box, wow.

Since I had repeatedly measured the original space before ordering, the unit fit perfectly as did the door. I had to upgrade a small section of the plumbing (been there since 1987) with 1/2" pex & shark bite. The unit installed with ease. Followed the instructions for installation, checking for leaks, connecting the water & LP gas lines. No leaks anywhere.

The unit has about a 1 or 2 second lag time for ignition, which is shorter than the unit I have had on at home for 4 years now.

Thanks you for the wonderful service and the great product.

Easy to install took about 3 hrs and that includes go to the hardware store and buying flex hoses for the water lines



by:

Best product we have bought for our Travel Trailer.

Gone are the days of trying to hold my eyes open at the firepit, setting a timer for 15 minutes so the next person can get a warm 6 gallon shower. Gone are the days where I had to pre-heat the water heater because the old 6 gallon water hadn't hit it's minimum temperature limit to re-fire, causing a luke warm shower. Gone are they days of a crabby wife telling me she had 1 minute of hot water and me trying (again) to explain how the faucet handles twist differently than at home.

I only had two issues installing.
1 - please be careful not to kink your LP soft copper hose. My 6 gallon LP connection was on outside of the camper and the new tankless was on the back of the unit. I had to make a big sweep to get it connect. I did kink it and I had to work out the kink.
2 - it wouldn't hurt to send a few feet of 1" butyl gasket with the new tankless water heater. My family does HVAC and I didn't feel like driving to the office to get butyl so I went to the hardware store. The only thing the hardware store had was 1/4" or 3/8" butyl for metal roofs. I put a few layers of the butyl between the frame and the camper exterior. Let me just say I wish I had gone to the office for the 1". After we got some water under the bunks from a rainstorm, I reinstalled the tankless using the 1" butyl.



by:

I began this tankless water heater replacement because my OEM tankless has never worked correctly. Once I saw the newer generation models included a quick adjust thermostat I decided to make a swap. I decided on the Furrion due to the rear mounted, “mixing chamber.” None of the doors were a direct fit so I sent a question to etrailer and got, I think, an automated answer that really did not answer my question. Upon ordering the unit I wanted, I was told it was out of stock. I was informed an alternate was available. I took the alternate and it promptly came. Installation was straight forward with some minor fabrication necessary for the door to look good. The Furrion looks very well made and assuming it continues to work I will continue to be satisfied.

Will I order from etrailer again? As of right now, I am sure I will.



by:

Loved the speed of replacement unit arrival! Worked like a charm. Old unit was damaged due to bad winterization. Unscrewed the screws of the previous unit (same brand/model). Slid out the old. unhooked the 4 wires (2 for thermostat, and 2 for 12v electrical). Unscrewed the hot/cold water hoses, along with gas hose. Reverse process putting new replacement unit back in. Caulked around the metal door frame. Voila! Done! About 1 hour to remove. And about 1 - 2 hours to install new and test it (before sliding it all back in place....Braced it on a short ladder when testing for leaks and functionality).



by:

Endless hot water rocks but it can be finicky to get tuned properly. My guess is once I get it dialed in correctly I should be good. Remember people you can adjust temperature AND flow through this thing. Even in my place with terrible water pressure it works just fine. When setting it up use the faucet with the shortest pipe run to the water heater to get your temperature set so you can just crank open the hot and go.

Originally I went round and round trying to get the original account representative on the phone at e-trailer. it wasn’t until I contacted customer service, very frustrated I couldn’t get my account representative on the phone, Ms Edith was very sympathetic to my situation and my frustration. She took over assisting me in getting my order and within a couple of days it appeared on my doorstep. She went above and beyond keeping me informed every step of the way and made sure that I was satisfied with e-trailer’s service.



by:

The Furrion tankless water heater came on time and was very well packaged. I currently have the unit installed and it is working great!



by:

The Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater I purchased is an awesome product! Hot water is flowing within seconds of turning the water on! And, hot water as long as you want it! Its a great addition to our rig! I highly recommend this product! Simple install as well!



by:

Overall, a good product. The unit does not like windy,wet weather. When it works it is marvelous and provides gobs of hot water.


Comments
We were in a heavy Fl rainstorm with 30+ mph winds blowing toward the heater side of the RV. We got an error code, but were able to get heater to temp with repeated cycle. This took 48 hours to finally resolve. It has not happened since.
-- comment by: Brian P - 04/15/2022
Comments
I have gotten in contact with one of our installers and they said that with the heavy storm the tubing connected to the pressure switch probably got water or debris in it causing what I am guessing was an E5 error. For future reference, if this happens again, we recommend checking the pressure switch and disconnecting the tubing and blowing it out. Once it is all dry reattach it and recycle power to water heater.

I don’t recall the error code, but it was not an E7. I want to say it was e1. As I mentioned earlier, repeated attempts to restart the heater resulted in sequential increase in temperature until they set temperature in was reached. The problem may have involved the pressure switch, but the error code does not match.
-- comment by: Brian P - 04/19/2022
Comments
I spoke with our installer again and they said that if it was an E1 code then that typically means insufficient fuel in the tanks or low gas pressure. When that error pops up, you should check your tanks and check the regulator. Incoming gas should be 11-14in-wc. You should also cycle power completely to the coach so the board can reset. Just turning off power from the controller is not the same.

Very easy to install. We really like the ability to adjust the temperature to each of our liking. The only complaint would be that we found in South Carolina in the summer where water lines aren't buried very deep, the unit couldn't back off enough when being fed 80 degree water.



by:

Still fighting other plumbing issues. But so far the unit has worked perfect right out of the box. Thank you for your help with this unit. etrailer has renewed my confidence in their continued helpfully knowledge and products. Thank you.



by:

One of the absolute best additions I have made to our camper. Love it and the hot shower for as long as I want that it provides.



by:

Is a drop-in replacement for the 5-7 gallon tank type it replaced. It has unique engineered features that make it first in class at delivering endless hot water. Uses same amount of propane as tank-type but you can take a real hot shower and wash and rinse dishes all in the same hour. Great for cold morning long hot showers not possible with tank type and a family.



by:

Lighting fast delivery, great product, works great.



by:

After much research I ordered this tankless water heater and installed. It works great, hot water is available in less than 30 seconds. There were a couple small issues I corrected on install, the screws protruding from the bottom of the unit were a bit to long not allowing the unit to set flat and my preference on the split plastic door latch next to the heat exhaust I change to a steel washer to prevent loosing the heater door.



by:

Very easy install and a great upgrade. We use our camper as a seasonal. Between kids, the beach and guests this is almost a necessity. Install was a breeze with the only minor inconvenience was the proper sized door being unavailable. I had to fabricate a filler for the gaps. Other then that it was almost plug and play. As far as the unit, it seems to be built well. It works as advertised, with an adjustable, endless supply of water. Thermostat is easy and simple to understand. Set it and go. Highly recommend. I have high expectations that Furrion will make a name for themselves in the RV industry.

Works great never runs out of hot water

Great service easy ordering and arrived at my home with our any problems.
Thanks a lot.



by:

Works great, even in Idaho winters! Makes all the difference for living in an RV.



by:

Simple to install, works awesome at 50 psi. As for my application I wish the door was bigger, it doesn't cover the old hole the Atwood I replaced was in.



by:

This is the best money I have spent
On
this 1 year old Super C and i have spent about 20,000+ dollars adding stuff.



by:

Installation was easy. I needed to run a ground to the body of the unit for my control center to work correctly. My tank/battery level lights would not work until I did. Hot water flowed quickly to my faucets and shower.
