The propane powered tankless looks like the ticket if you need lots of hot water. I looked at electric ones for the house and they would have required me to put in more power to the house.

Thank you all for your advice. I think I will look at tankless. Now, what to do with the big square hole in the side of Belle!

Compare the measurements of the hole with the specified mount hole for the tankless. May need a tidy patch...sigh.

The 6 gallon Atwood is about an inch shorter that the Precision Temp 550 series.

Sometimes a patch is needed

Install the tankless.

Then reinstall the old water heater door, which makes the trailer look like all the others.

Only you know that the door goes to nothing.

That would work even better if you reuse the frame of the 12 gallon. Just be sure the power vent exhaust and intake is unobstructed...

Choose the tankless to work with whatever's left of the old one.

Darn good idea, Andy!
