Marey Tankless

The Marey 5L is a small, flat, light weight unit, 17" x 11.4" x 4.7" weighing 12 lbs. which can be vented from the side (3 " cut out). I am installing it in my 1954 Safari on the bathroom wall next to the sink. It includes a light shower hose with shower head (works only when button depressed). Desired temperature can be dialed on front control. A "T" fitting can be installed for both sinks.
I will report back with a review after I've had a chance to use it a while. Right now, I've just finished replacing the rotted portion, 35%, of plywood floor. AFter troweling on floor leveler, I plan to install vinyl tile squares (commercial) and put everything back after replacing bad panels of wood in dinette seats, partition walls, beds. Still have plumbing, black water tank, LP gas lines to go.

Make sure you keep a window cracked when you use it. I don't want to read about you in the papers.

It is very frustrating... I ask my salesman at the wholesaler every time I call in an order and he actually calls Atwood while I wait on hold. I was once told that a supplier sent defective parts and another sent inferior quality materials. I guess they want to just get it right before they launch. In the mean time I will keep installing the PT RV500. They work VERY well and all the customers I install them for are very happy with the way they perform. The down side is the opening size. It is narrower and taller than a standard Atwood. I have found by making a patch the same size as the door hides any alterations. Oh, yeah, the door... it comes unpainted in aluminum and polishes like a mirror.

I had an electric previously. So I was able to cut an exact opening. I hooked up the water lines and am running the gas lines this weekend.

Do you have any tips on polishing the door? Just worried about messing up the louvers.

Anyone have an update on this tankless water heater. I am considering the Precision Temp RV-500 because of all the great reviews I have read, but saw this just came out. Wondering what peoples experience is with this one?

I see it can do a 70 degree temperature rise at 1.25 gallons a minute. Does anyone know about a 60 degree rise or 50 degree rise what the flow rate would be on this Atwood.

I am almost tempted to not even bother with anything other than the RV-500 because of well reviewed and highly praised it is.

We have an RV500 and are delighted with it.

Installation in an Airstream can be a challenge, because the water heater should be level, and the outer trailer walls are not square. We had some issues with this, even in an old '66 Safari that looks pretty slab-sided to me. The newer trailers have a more rounded shape, so it might not be a quick pull and replace.
