Precison Temp RV 500 FAQ'S

Return to RV-500 Main Page

What makes the RV-500 special? It delivers instantaneous, continuous and endless hot water for as long as you want. You can literally shower for hours.
How can the RV-500 provide endless hot water? The RV-500 has no tank. Water is heated instantly to 115ºF only when you request it. No propane is used to keep unused water hot.
How do I get the RV-500 to heat hot water? Simply turn on a hot water faucet. A flow meter in the RV-500 is activated and the heater automatically comes on to heat water. When you turn off the faucet, the burner shuts down. There is not even a pilot light. Simply turn on a hot water faucet. A flow meter in the RV-500 is activated and the heater automatically comes on to heat water. When you turn off the faucet, the burner shuts down. There is not even a pilot light.
How long does it take to have hot water? The RV-500 begins making hot water in about three seconds. The water temperature will rise rapidly to the set temperature (115º F).
Does the RV-500 install like other water heaters? Yes. It installs and flues like a tank heater, in the side walls of your RV. The water, gas and electrical hookups are the same type used on tank heaters.
Will the RV-500 fit into the same bay in my RV's side-wall? In almost all instances it will. The RV-500 mounting flange is designed to perfectly replace a common ten gallon tank heater. To replace a six gallon heater, a few inches must be added to the vertical dimension. This can be cut up or down.
Is the RV-500 as noisy as my current tank heater? No. It is so quiet that the only way you know it's operating is that you have hot water.
Does the RV-500 use more propane than tank heaters? To the contrary, the RV-500 is about 20% more efficient than tank heaters. And, because there is no standby heat loss, you may find that you are using 1/2 or less the amount of propane per gallon of hot water.
How do I winterize my RV-500? Simply drain the system of water, blowing it out with air, or else running non toxic anti-freeze through the heater while winterizing the rest of the plumbing system. The RV-500 only requires about a pint of antifreeze.
If endless hot water is such a good idea, why doesn't everyone use it? Most people don't realize that they have an alternative to tank heaters. It takes a lot of time and marketing dollars to get the word out. But for those who want endless hot water and a quiet and efficient hot water system, the RV-500 is perfect.
When operating, does it create as hot an exhaust as my tank heater? No. It is about 50% cooler. It will not scorch the side of your RV.
