Girard Tankless RV Water Heater


Girard Tankless RV Water Heater

Product Code: VTS-682


Girard Products' second generation GSWH-2 tankless water heater offers a number of advantages over traditional 6- or 10-gallon tank water heaters. The most important advantage is that it provides an unlimited supply of hot water with no recovery time. In addition, Although operating at a powerful 42,000 BTUs, Girard estimates that their water heater uses 60% less propane than a tank heater because there is no reheating of water. Water is heated only as it is used.

In addition to these primary advantages, tankless heaters can reduce the weight of your trailer because you are not carrying 50 to 90 pounds of water around in the hot water tank. If you fill up with you near your destination, this can be beneficial.

Having no tank means that winterizing is a breeze because no bypass valving is necessary. And your annual tank cleaning is a thing of the past because rust or sediment has nowhere to collect.

The Girard Products' tankless water heater is the first induced draft water heater in the RV industry. Induced draft means that it incorporates a power blower (with a quiet brush-less motor) that forces the combustion air through the heat exchanger. This design results in a unit capable of providing:

  • Higher burner power in a smaller package
  • Higher combustion efficiency
  • Heat transfer efficiencies in excess of 90% without condensation
  • Higher wind resistance performance

The heater features a 12-volt electronic ignition. There are no pilot lights or manual burners to light or maintain. Operates at less than 3 Amps.
