Point of Use Electric Water Heater ?

Has anyone used one in there AS ? I have an 18' Traveler with no shower, it also never had a hot water heater. I've seen 2.5 gal. point of use electric heaters that draw 12.5 amps and plug into 110. I'm wondering if would stand up to RV use. I'd be great to have hot water to do the dishes and wash the face.
Thanks Greg

I've used an Ariston hot water heater at camp for the last two summers and my brother used it for two years prior to that - so we're on the fifth year. It works fine heating lake water for showers and general clean-up. No complaints - but it is a semi-stationary use. (We take it out of service, load it in the 'Burb and haul it home every autumn). I suspect, with proper mounting to minimize vibration that it will do a yeoman's job of supplying hot water, so long as you have a 30 amp service or budget you AC use judiciously.

You could install an Atwood water heater that runs on both 110 as well as propane with direct spark ignition. It would be more versatile if electric isn't available. You can get one on e-bay for less than $300. Super easy to install, too.

The only tankless water heater rated for RV use is the RV500 by Precisiontemp.

Atwood makes an even smaller version, a G4-7 4 gallon LP, not sure of the dimensions but it has to be a bit smaller that the 6
