H2O heater w/o Holding Tank

I'm looking at a trailer that has no fresh water holding tank and no water heater. I'd like to add both over time. However, in the interim, is it possible to add and utilize a water heater w/o a fresh water holding tank (would obviously only use when connected to city water)?

Yes, on-board and city water supplies are separated from each other. Our fresh water storage tank has a hole in it bigger than the one that sank the Titanic, but everything beyond that is watertight and works fine, including the water heater.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

My trailers PO had completely bypassed the onboard water system to hook up direct. I will be returning the on board system to service when the rest of the plumbing is complete. The holding tank is in place however. I did have an old mid fifties monster (not an AS though, an old heavily panneled rig with the curved aft end) which was plumbed with a standard commode and direct dump line. It was fairly stationary of course.

Best of luck...

Thanks guys for the quick response. I feel better now. Good luck with fixing the hole and the restoring of the plumbing system!
