HOT WATER HEATER---ELECTRIC OR PROPANE Wanderer 1-20-03  
Can the hot water heater be both electric and propane? Mine seems to be propane only. Can they be elecric only? How do you visually determine whether it's also electric or electric only? (I see an electrical connection but that may only be to ignite the heater.) Thank you

You can have either or both. Many motor homes have both as purchased. Almost every motor home has propane as an installed unit. You can easily install a 120v electric heating element so it will heat the water when the generator is running or you are hooked up to shore power. Stop at Camping World and they'll tell you all about it. Yes it can be done and it can be done by you or a technician.

My wife and I are having an ongoing debate (sometimes tense) as to which is the most economical use of energy for hot water in our RV.

We have a small class a motor home that has hot water heart that runs on either plug in electric (at $.14 per KWH) or propane. Which is cheaper to operate?

Our other major debate is: Is it cheaper to keep it always on (for instant hot water) or better to turn it off and then turn on when needed. (ie: showers, dishes once per day)

Thanks,
Pastor John

I own a 1997 30' Georgie Boy Motorhome on an F450 chassis. Currently the water heater is propane only. I think it's a 30 gallon size.
What are my options of having it to also be on electric. Do you have a conversion "kit", or will I have to replace the whole unit. The thermostat is located inside the coach.

Thanks for any help you can provide. Also if there's a local dealer in the San Antonio, Texas area, please recommend one.
Sincerely,
Eddie Derr

I'm looking for two water heater elements that are a little shorter than the ones I have, which are 14&1/4" long & 3/8" diameter. They were installed in another water heater but are to long for the one I have,which is a Atwood G6A-4E ? I would be very gratefull if you could help me out in any way. I'm running a generator anyway so might as while make hot water @ the same time. Thank you JACK
