Tankless idea

what do you think of mounting a tankless heater to the back of your trailer or possibly a mounting bracket for the bumper. It would obviously have to be covered but I think it could work. it may be alittle cumbersome to have to take it off and on but in my case I live in mine while out of ton working. What is your thoughts

We plan on a tankless for the house we might build someday, and maybe a second tankless for the radiant heating system.

Our six gallon oem water heater operates so well and stores the hot water we make so long, I can't imagine a tankless accruing enough benefits to be worth trying.

We have hot water in under 20 minutes, have never run out, and leave it off all day unless we are going to use it. Water remains hot eight to twelve hours.

Not instantaneous, but pretty great.

Best regards,
Jim
