The last time I went to buy a new vehicle. He asked "what amenities" I wanted. The word use to be "Options". When I told him all I want is "a heater and a key" He gave me this blank look and said "We don't have anything Like that". He didn't understand. It was 9 years ago.
3 years ago, a life long friend was selling his 1998 3/4 ton Dodge pickup. I wasn't really in the market for a truck. It had 76K miles on it; no carpet, just rubber floor mats, a 5 speed manual transmission and wind up windows. I bought it. It does have a heater, key and radio. OH! and air conditioning if you want to call it that. It's the first vehicle I've ever had air in.
What was wrong with water heaters and furnaces or refers that didn't have any electronic cicuit boards to go bad? Maybe a thermocouple or heating element every 10 or 15 years. All this fancy stuff in todays units is short lived and expensive to repair, if it can be repaired. In most cases it's replace not repair.
Why do we need hot water mixing valves in a travel trailer.
Of course I am from the last century.
