Yes and yes. I put the precision temp marine version in my previous trailer and apart from the extra cost it's all win win.

Precision Temp 500. Pricey, but wonderful!

I am using the unit that fits into the location of the atwood tank heater. Purchased from PPL RV. This unit also has external flange and door that is customized to replace the original heater for original look. I like it but have had two issues. I had the single mixing valve in shower, and this does not always allow the proper flow to keep the heater on. I had to change that to a separate cold and hot water fixture. Second, I am now exploring if the gas supply needs modification. It is at the end of the gas line with 3/8ths tubing. I suspect it is not getting full 11"wc so it has had it's moments of intermittant heating. I am still glad I switched for weight and LP efficiency. Did not know about precision temp marine unit.

We use a precision temp 550. No change to propane piping needed. Was able to relocate line to fit new HW heater. Only issue I've had was running low on propane or low water flow due to a crap external regulator.
