Dave it sounds like in your case that the propane water heater is your best bet. Use the $200.00 toward other options you want and need. I have and use the electric water heater but only because I camp where electricity is also needed for air conditioning.

We're now on page four of this topic. It's not about US... it's about YOU and what you need now... and in the future. Anyone have a crystal ball?

No. That would happen to an open pot left on a stove, but this is a closed container so there's no way for water vapour to leave.

But, non-sterile water left in any container for "a while" will develop algea or other "stuff" you may not want to ingest.

I'll post pictures sometime next week.

Here in the Pacific NorthWET, propane prices are rising and electric costs are going down. We're big into solar and wind power, not so big into drilling.
I'm working on my 5.0TA build sheet and am curious what are the two "stooge tables." I too plan on using the U shaped area as a lounging area and will be looking forward to you pictures.

Some use the breaker, but breakers are not meant to be used a lot as on/off switches, they are to protect a circuit, and to isolate it if you need to work on it.
Jim, not to criticize, but under ETI's "30 Amp Available Power" instructions in their Owner's Manual, they specifically state to use the main breaker as an on/off switch when working with grid power.

I ran into this issue recently...

Umm Stargeezer

"It is a small switch on the water heater that you have to get down and look for, and yes, it is on the left. I never saw it when I first looked for it, good thing I was camping with Reace.

"This is just another reason for adding a switch inside, seeing the one on the water heater is a real pain to use. This way I can switch on from inside, with an indicator light that alerts me to it being on. Some use the breaker, but breakers are not meant to be used a lot as on/off switches, they are to protect a circuit, and to isolate it if you need to work on it. "

Note the bold statement..

2 way water heater

We are parked at a very nice camp ground in Grants Pass on our way to Bandon, be there next Friday. While reading this thread our neighbors 5th wheel water heater was on gas and heating the water, at 25 feet it is amazing how noisy it is through my open window and makes me glad we have the choice of electric when hooked up.

Hi Azjack,
Which campground in Grant's Pass? There is a real fancy one at Exit 99, at 7 Feathers. The last time I was there (last year) I saw a 15' Escape.
