Help choosing an all electric tankless hot water heater

I bought an AS that the interior was totally gutted except for electricity and I am started to research parts and would like to know your thoughts on doing away with the LP altogether and replacing it with electric tankless hot water heater, electric fridge and electric HVAC... For hot water heater I was thinking the Rheem EcoSense On Demand 3kW 120 Volt Tankless Electric Water Heater from Home Depot. Any feed back would be greatly appreciated. The reason for doing away with the LP is because all the places I go camping have electric hook up or I take a generator. Thanks again

Electric tankless water heaters are all but useless in a residential environment where you have 200-amp service. I would seek another solution for an RV application where you'll essentially never have more than 50A total service (with other demands on that 50A.)

Hot water heater

LOL well I just went through this same this myself. Propane is the way to go for hot water, stove, and outside gas source. There’s only so much power you can draw from these campgrounds. However I did buy an all electric fridge. But that can be changed later. I also took out the furnace. No need. If it gets cold I can plug something in. FYI I bought a tank less hot water heater, its sitting in my garage J. Changed my mind. Good luck.

I installed this one in my park model. I can actually shower longer with this than my 6 gal propane. I chose it because of 120 volt hook up. Now I can not make toast while it is running. Not sure how it made it thru the winter. I just put it in last summer.
