Lots of discussion on "on demand water heater". I've read that water is wasted getting up to temperature. I consider the standard water heater to be "on demand". I turn it on for half an hour in the morning, then off, and have hot water on demand until time to do dinner dishes.

As fas as the sink, I find too much water on the counters from turning on/off the water. Perhaps a sink with the faucet integrated into it with one faucet would keep the water in the sink. A step light as well as hookup light would be a nice addition for better night time visibility.

Having owned a trailer with the on demand water, like Glenn says, you waste a lot of water setting the temperature which is one by adjusting the flow of water, low flow allows hotter, higher flow is cooler.

They have a double step (#920) that looks like it'd fit the existing bracket but folded up it hangs 2" lower then the 120. For $120 off Amazon I might look into it come spring. Be nicer then lugging around a step.
I put that step on my 21 due wifey's bum knee. Works well.

I haven't thought of that for years. As a kid the first time I flushed and realized it was going right onto the tracks, it made me think about all the time we spent walking on the tracks....

Yup, pretty much agree with that. I've used them for years on boats and used to import them. They've got pluses and minuses. The fact that I've got one, new in the box, and haven't installed it in my Escape pretty much sums it up.

Less clearance was mentioned, I believe.
Any chance of a photograph with step deployed?
